£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

Speed, quality of service and PPE measures in store.

Katie, Middlesbrough

Promoting PPE (all kinds of retail should promote PPE like spec savers are!! ) big pat on the back

David, Middlesbrough

I am most pleased with the service as a whole from booking the appointment for an eye test (very easy) a nice reminder phone call with an explanation and assurance of the COVID measures that are in place in the store. The 2 for 1 frames is always a good deal and the bonus of a golden ticket to get some sunglasses with my new prescription with a 50% discount in the near future made me very happy :-) The process of collecting my glasses was also very smooth. Well done on a great service. Thank you.
