Now I am in England and often Scotland is differnt.No, I tried to book today and was told they're not handling them this year, and a letter from the health board will be sent out in September. It's September now, so I tried Tesco's - not a sausage, and Boots nearest is Dumfries. I don't really want to wait for the wheels of red tape to turn so want to find a pharmacy. May be one 13 miles away so will ring them. just wondered what the situation was with other people.
You need to check on your local Eye Screening website for what they are currently doing or contact them. You could also do the same with your clinic to see what the situation is with them.I haven't had a clinic appointment since January, and no sign of an eye test - last one was 18 months ago.
Mine's overdue, too. I did have my annual (well, 4 months late) eye test a few weeks ago and they took photos. I know High St opticians don't examine the photos is as much detail as at a diabetic eye screening, as they're looking for things like AMD, but they said everything looked normal. Which is something, I suppose.Eye screening in Scotland is postponed since April until further notice due to you know what. My clinic is always with the practice nurse at the GP surgery so I guess that's on hold indefinitely as well.

So is mine, when i rang a couple of months ago , I was told it was phone only , did not see the point so did not bother. I was told the same a month later,so booked along with an Asthma one. First thing nurse said I needed to be sen for Diabetes to have bloods and checks followed by a phone appointment with results. Which she booked for me whilst on the phone, then we did the Asthma bit.
Why don't you give your surgery a call.
