NHS and private eye examinations

Eye examination

We offer comprehensive eye examinations with experienced optometrists.

An examination helps to identify potential problems with your eyesight before they develop and also provides a window to your overall health. Even if you can see clearly, we recommend an examination at least every two years as eyes change over time.

We treat each patient as an individual. Choosing a new pair of spectacles should be a fun and exciting experience and so we try hard to make it just that. We will carefully provide guidance on your frame and lens choice to make sure you end up with the best solution for your requirements and budget.

We specialise in supplying quality lenses from Zeiss and Nikon. We offer a range of frames both traditional and fashionable from many well known brands.

Contact lenses

Contact lenses

Everyone has unique visual requirements according to their lifestyle, occupational and leisure needs. To reflect this, there are different types of contact lenses with a variety of lens replacement and wearing schedules, each offering their own advantages. Whether you are interested in Daily Wear, Monthly Disposable, contact lenses for Astigmatism, or Gas Permeable lenses, the health of your eyes and quality of your vision is of the utmost importance to us.


Magnifying glass

We can provide magnifiers for hobby and work use, and also advice on specialist magnifiers and visual aids for when vision deteriorates to such an extent that even glasses do not suffice for reading or enjoying your hobby.



Being at one with nature, immersing yourself in silence to find peace and relaxation. Taking in unforgettable sights as great herds roam across the plains of Africa, or sitting in your back garden and relishing unique moments as colourful birds fly up out of the bushes. It is for times like these that Carl Zeiss has spent over a century developing leading-edge optics, giving nature lovers the opportunity to experience nature more closely than ever before.


Eye care

From lens cleaning solutions, to spectacle cords and chains, prescription swimming goggles, eye bags and eye care products, if we haven’t got it, we’ll get it!


A little history

JB Coad and Son Opticians was founded by my father in 1972. He instilled in me the family traditions of attention to detail and a pride in providing the best service to our customers. We have enjoyed serving people of all ages from across the Vale of Aylesbury and beyond. And we really do enjoy our work, many of our customers we have now known for years and now regard as friends.

Our customers tell us they are pleased to see the same familiar faces as our team has been together for some time now. This continuity of knowledge, experience and care enables us to provide much more individual advice and services - which pleases us too.
