I could spit! My local opticians told me earlier this year that it had been stopped as it wasn't cost effective , so I dumped a number that Id accumulated . I thought he had meant the whole scheme.

I've just taken several into Specsavers in Liscard and they were happy to take them even though I wasn't a customer. I suppose it would pay to check before making a special journey as the list may not be up to date.
