£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.

I have been coming to you for years as I feel you do thorough checks and the staff are always top notch and genuinely want to help me.

The service from the staff. The optician was very easy to talk to and explained things clearly and the young lady who I spoke to at the start was very pleasant also
