153 Million Reasons Lions Recycle for Sight
According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses.
Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don't have glasses. They can't learn,
because reading is difficult. They can't work to the best of their ability, because they can't see clearly.
It costs Lions less than $0.08 to provide a pair of recycled eyeglasses and change someone's life.
For children, clear vision means a better education, healthier
development and a better quality of life. For adults, it means greater
employment opportunity and economic strength. For seniors it means less dependence on others.
Lions clubs collect millions of eyeglasses each year, making eyeglass recycling one of our most popular activities. You can help.
