EYE TEST PLUS DIGITAL RETINA SCAN
Standard Eye Test plus a Digital Retinal Scan that provides detailed high resolution images of the retina. This helps optometrists detect both eye health issues, and in some cases general health issues that relate to retinal changes.

EYE TEST PLUS OCT SCAN
Standard Eye Test with the added reassurance of an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)scan. This highly sensitive scanner looks deep below the visible surface of the eye to reveal the hidden layers beneath, along with any issues that would be very hard to detect early without this ground breaking technology.
