Eye health & advice

Eye health is extremely important to us here at Boots. We have created a one stop shop which contains advice on various eye conditions and eye concerns. Whether you are suffering from conjunctivitis, glaucoma, astigmatism, you will find all the information and solutions on our website to take care of your eyes.

To keep your eyes in the best shape possible, we recommend regular eye tests to identify early signs of medical conditions. Booking an appointment for an eye check is simple, either call us on 0345 125 3752* or book online. If you want to add an extra dimension to your eye test, opt of an OCT scan to see what’s going on under the surface of your eye and its worth checking if you are eligible for a free NHS eye test.
