£10 OCT scan (Scotland)

Boost your eye test with our 3D eye scanning technology - available for just £10.  An optical coherence tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) helps us to view the health of your eyes in greater detail, by allowing us to see what’s going on beneath the surface. The £10 charge for an OCT scan is additional to our standard eye test fee.*  During August and September our Scottish stores are donating £2 from every OCT scan to Simpsons Special Care Babies charity. Ask in store for details.  

* For customers entitled to a free NHS-funded eye test or those using a valid eye test voucher, an additional £10 OCT scan charge still applies.

Customer reviews

I have been using Specsavers for many years and I am always pleased with the professional service.

Donna, Aberdeen

The modern technology both for the actual vision test and the diagnostic testing is very impressive and makes for a much easier and more informative process.

Elizabeth, Aberdeen

This was my first eye test at the age of 30 so I was a bit apprehensive. Hannah, honestly made me feel less nervous, explained everything in detail and felt like she genuinely cared about my eye health. After a clear result of my test it didn’t stop her from wanting to take it further incase there was something else to be done which I really appreciated.
