Thank you for your attentive and friendly help for my wife and myself.  I am indeed delighted with my new spectacles, both the vision and the fit of them.  We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you again at the appropriate time.


Mr & Mrs N


Mr Binnington always summarises the examination in a very clear, simple and straightforward way.




I know Mr Binnington is very particular so it must have been very difficult finding another optician to work in the practice, however, my son saw Mr Khoo and he was very pleased with the examination and advice he received, and how nice Mr Khoo was.


Mrs JB


Best sight test I’ve ever had, very thorough.


Mrs D


Best opticians I’ve ever been to, very professional. 




Excellent service as normal - but you tend to expect it when you come here.


Mr. C


Mr Thurling, I appreciate very much your care and expertise in helping to get sight in my eye restored.  Thank you.


Mrs SW


Thank you very much Mr Binnington for the new glasses you have prescribed for me after my second cataract operation. The lenses are really excellent, and it is wonderful to have my full sight restored. Sight is very precious, and I am so grateful for the care you always take.


Mrs MB


Nigel Thurling best optician EVER!


Mrs MP


I was very impressed with the care I received from Nigel and his staff during my recent visit, will certainly use this practice again, even if it means another trip over from France!


Mrs EC


Thank you for looking after my eyes so expertly and with such care over recent years.


Mrs LJ


Mr Binnington thanks for all your kind and supportive attention over the past few years.


Mrs PS


We have been very grateful for the care of Mr Binnington and Mr Thurling for the last 25 years.


Mrs IS


Thank you so much for your professionalism, friendliness and helpful advice over the past 40 years.


Mr & Mrs MT


Thank you Mr Binnington for taking such good care of me!


Mr B


Binnington and Thurling succeeded where the chains in York failed, in making me emergency driving glasses the same day so that I could get home after I lost them! Thank you




Thank you Mr Thurling for suggesting and allowing me to try several different contact lenses until I found the right ones for me. I never realised there were so many different options!




I have always been extremely impressed at the professionalism and courtesy displayed at Binnington & Thurling's. All the staff are pleasant, considerate and really put you at your ease. I have moved away from York, but continue to travel here because I value the calm, competent atmosphere - so much nicer than the in-your-face tactics of various chain opticians. I feel my eyes are in good hands (if that's not an odd mental image!) and I would recommend them to everyone.
