£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

Caring and helpful attitude towards me.

Eileen, Newtownabbey

The very good attitude and friendly help and care I received

Kathleen, Newtownabbey

Without doubt visiting Specsavers at Abbey Centre is an enjoyable experience which for me has always had a very positive outcome. It’s unusual in today’s demanding retail environment to encounter a specialist store where virtually 100% of the management & staff are so customer-friendly, well-trained, technically-proficient and efficient. Also the whole team seems to work very well together and have the customer’s interests at heart. Thank you all..!!
