There are only 600 slots available across the country, which include a free eye test and personalised style consultation.

The first pair of glasses are free when customers swap an old pair, and any additional pairs are half-price.

A spokesperson for Boots said: “To book an appointment, you’ll need to either call or drop-in to a participating Boots Opticians store from Thursday, March 7 and quote ‘Frame Amnesty’, but go quick as spaces are very limited.”

The small print states customers must present an old pair of prescription glasses - from any retailer - to receive a new complete pair of prescription glasses (with Boots Protect single vision lenses) free of charge.

The free pair of frames will include standard single vision lenses only with any upgrades charged at their usual rate.

Boots, Princes Street, can be contacted on 0131 225 6397.
