Eyeglass recycling

In just about any home, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.

That's why Lions started the Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help.

Throughout the year, we collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.

In Cheltenham, we collect glasses from the following businesses and organisations:

Chapmans Opticians in the Regent Arcade
Ellis & Killpatrick Opticians in the Regent Arcade
Guildford & Carter Opticians in Bishops Cleeve
Cheltenham General Hospital - Eye Department
Gloucester Royal Hospital - Eye Department
