Seymour Lions Recycle For Sight

The Seymour Lions Club will be collecting used prescription eyeglasses and prescription and non-prescription sunglasses as part of a unique recycling program. The collected glasses will be cleaned and prepared for distribution in developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible. We are also collecting used hearing aides.

The donated glasses will be shipped to a regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center where they will be cleaned, categorized by prescription and prepared for distribution by Lions and other groups.

To donate used glasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses), place them in the specially marked Lions Recycle for Sight collection boxes located at:

Seymour Town Hall  1 1st ST  Seymour CT
Smith's Ansonia Shell, Rt. 8 & Great Hill Rd., Ansonia, CT
Seybridge Pharmacy, 37 New Haven Rd., Seymour, CT
George Tzepos, OD, 25 New Haven Rd., Seymour, CT
Wakelee Memorial Funeral Home, 167 Wakelee Ave., Ansonia, CT


The Seymour Lions Club has over 50 members and meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 at Seymour Land Trust. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
