£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.
