£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.

High standard of expertise and diagnostic testing. Extremely helpful and friendly staff.

Susan, Whitstable

The staff. Plenty of them, enthusiastic, they look as if they enjoy working there. they are smart in their uniforms and seem highly trained and professional.

Linda, Whitstable

Excellent experience all around. I was very weary as high risk and I have put my appointment off for over a year. I felt as ease the second I entered the shop until I left. Well done Whitstable team. Outstanding service
