What should I expect when visiting for my eye examination?

Your eye examination will include:

Eye tests are free to everyone in Scotland under the NHS

An OCT Scan is £10

We recommend an eye test every 2-3 years. Under 18’s, we recommend you get an eye test every 6-12 months.

You will sit in front of the scanner and rest your head on a support. The equipment will then scan your eye (without touching it) and will take no more than 20 seconds per eye.

You shouldn’t feel any pain throughout your eye examination or OCT scan.
