Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Our new hospital grade technology gives you a deeper understanding of your long term eye health.

Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye conditions which affect the optic nerve as it joins the back of the eye. Most types have no symptoms, so a regular eye test is the only way to know you have the condition.

The practicalities

An OCT scan only adds a few minutes to our standard eye test. It is non-invasive, completely painless, has no known aftereffects and is not at all uncomfortable.

We do charge £10 for an OCT scan, in addition to the cost of your standard eye test.
