Sight test appointments usually last 30 to 40 minutes. Your optometrist will tailor the examination according to your individual circumstance, taking into account your age, medical history and lifestyle. We recommend that everyone over the age of 40 should see an optician (optometrist) or medical specialist for an eye test every two years. This is particularly important if you have a close relative with glaucoma (brother, sister, parent or child), if you are African Caribbean, Asian, diabetic, have low blood pressure, or are short sighted.

You can get your eyes examined free of charge by any optometrist in Scotland who provides NHS services.
