£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

Efficiency of the sore, kind and understanding staff.

Jennifer, Durham

Overall everything the staff make you feel very comfortable and a safe place due to coroniviras.

Deborah, Durham

The advice I had from the optician I talked to early on in lockdown was most helpful, and we agreed to watch and wait, but with the option of a visit if there was any deterioration (probable posterior vitreous detachment). It is excellent to have very competent opticians who can handle a lot more than just the refraction! And staff who work well together.
