Recycle For Sight

Recycle For Sight Program

Changing Lives, One Pair Of Glasses At A Time

In just about any dresser drawer, 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 the Lions Recycle for Sight program was started. Everyone
can help. Throughout the year, Lions and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses. Volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and then package the glasses for distribution. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed
to people in need in developing countries where they will have the
greatest impact.

If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, you can donate them now. Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed. Imagine if you
could help a child read. An adult succeed in their job. A senior maintain their independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more.
