EYEGLASS EXTRAVAGANZA RECYCLING PROGRAM: 

We collect prescription, non-prescription and sun glasses which we deliver to our Lions facility in New Jersey. There they are reconditioned and distributed to Lions Clubs throughout the world. We are very proud that the Ellington community donated over 1,000 pair during 2017. Together with other Lions Clubs in Eastern Connecticut, over 30,000 pair of glasses were collected!

Look for collection/drop off boxes at various locations around town (e.g. Hall Memorial Library, Hometown Pizza, Ellington Congregational Church, St. Lukes, Ellington Senior Center, etc.)

"LIONS KIDSIGHT USA"  Pediatric Vision Screening Program

Using a hand held device (which incorporates a camera and a computer) we can screen children from ages 6 months to 6+ years for 6 common vision problems. The process takes seconds and requires no eye drops nor physical contact with the child. The service is offered free of charge and has been conducted in Ellington pre-school centers. We are now  offering it in the Ellington School system for Pre-K thru 3rd grade. Nationally, the Lions Kidsight USA program screened over 1,000,000 children during 2017.
