I ......... go to hospital tomorrow to have my eyes checked.

( must  -  have to  -  will have to  -  have got to )

I think MUST is the answer. What do you think ?

Hi, Dr Ahmed—I agree with Dr Ahmed that all the choices are grammatically correct; there is no grammatically incorrect answer. In order to decide which choice is the most natural, we would need a context, and there is none.

One of my dearest teachers said that: Both HAVE TO & HAVE GOT TO are correct in such a context.

Hello again, Dr Ahmed—When you say "in such a context," I look around for a context but find none. Again, all of the answer choices are correct, since the exercise does not provide a context.

The speaker here speaks about something that he arranged for. Swan Stated in his practical English usage that we use either of them in the case of arranging for something in the future. What do you think ?

How do you know that the speaker is speaking about something that he arranged for? There is no context supplied in the question. If the context is one in which he is realizing the necessity of doing something tomorrow, or spontaneously choosing to do something tomorrow, "must" and "will have to" are more natural than "have to" and "have got to." If the context is the one that your dear teacher has in mind, then his or her preference makes sense. Again, since there is no context, you can't say that one or two answers are better.
