Since Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917, Lions have worked on projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Indeed, sight is one of Lions defining causes.

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 through the Lions Recycle for Sight program.  Everyone can help!

Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers 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 commmunities where they will have the greatest impact. 

You can drop off your eyeglass donations at any of the following locations:

Walmart Supercenter, Old Forest Rd.
Forest Public Library
Harmon Eye Center on Graves Mill Rd.
Harmon Eye Center Wyndhurst on Enterprise Dr.
MyEyeDr. on Timberlake Rd.
