£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

I was worried about my eye which had deteriorated and they saw me within a few hours of my calling them. I was quite worried about going there as I have been self-isolating for six weeks and I felt unsure of myself. They completely put me at my ease and were very kind.

That an appointment was made for me as an emergency, 1 hour after I telephoned.

Karen, Christchurch

Rebecca sanitised every surface before I sat at table and hand sanitiser was available on entry to shop. All the staff were kind and cheerful and deserve a gold star each !
