An Eye Examination is important not only to check your vision but also for any signs of glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and any other eye conditions.

During an Eye Examination other health issues can also be detected such as diabetes and high blood pressure.  This is why regular checks are so important.

  • You are 60 or over

OCT is a new, totally painless and advanced imaging system that checks for potentially serious conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, age related macular degeneration, vitreous detachment and more.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the ultimate advanced eye scan.  Similar to an ultrasound and available for people of all ages, OCT uses light to image the different layers that make up the structures at the front and the back of your eye.

The OCT machine captures a cross-sectional scan and a photograph of the eye at the same time.  The software can automatically detect even the most subtle changes to the retina with every eyetest you have.  This creates an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eyes.

An OCT scan costs £35
