£10 OCT scan

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.*

* 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

Service, in-depth eye testing, Quickness and cost. I feel you guys have the whole package. The optician I saw also picked up an abnormality in my eyes the time before this appointment and I was referred and have since been diagnosed with a drainage problem which the hospital is dealing with. I am incredibly thankful that the optician was highly trained and was able to pick this issue up because if it had not been picked up and my eyes deteriorated, I could have been facing a serious sight problem.

The whole experience was good PPE was changed regularly staff very conscious of this it didn’t have any impact on the good service that was delivered WELL DONE

Lorraine, Bedford

The staff were all very attentive and possessed good communication skills. I was made to feel that my custom mattered and I was not pressured into buying more expensive frames, which has happened elsewhere.
