Eye tests are free to everyone in Scotland under the NHS
An OCT Scan is free of charge
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.
