    They've been open throughout for urgent and essential care, but are now open (in England and Wales) for routine eye tests.

    Yup. My local SpecSavers are open but on an appointment only basis. You ring ahead to book the appointment.

    Right now my eyesight has gone strange. I have had floater, rarely, in the past. This is like that but worse. There is a line, a semi-circle type floater.
    I can see to type this but its frustrating.
    Any ideas?

    Yes, I saw someone yesterday trying on frames then peering through the window to show his wife as she was not allowed in the shop with him. 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    We can't give medical advice.
    If you are concerned talk to a professional or phone 111 if you don't think it can wait till tomorrow.

    It seems a little better now, see how it goes tonight. It was making if difficult to read, but now a little better.
    I had my eyes tested around a year ago, maybe I need another appointment.
    I only wear reading glasses, but I have noticed reduced vision this year. When looking at numbers I can sometimes see an echo of the number.

    I was told, very recently, that 'floaters' was considered urgent care. Please phone your opticians for advice.
