NHS & Private Eye Examinations

At Liverton Opticians, we offer private eye examinations, including an OCT scan and fundus photo, for £25.

We also offer NHS testing, where you can receive a free eye examination if:

  • You’re aged under 16
  • You’re aged 16, 17 or 18 and are in full-time education
  • You’re aged 60 or over
  • You’re registered as partially sighted (sight impaired) or blind (severely sight impaired)
  • You’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma
  • You’ve been advised by an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) that you’re at risk of glaucoma
  • You’re on certain benefits (Income Support, Income related Employment and Support Allowance, Tax Credit, Income Based Jobseekers Allowance)
  • If you are on a low income, you may be able to get help with the cost of sight tests, glasses and contact lenses through the NHS Low income Scheme.
