Eye Glasses Collection

       Used eye glasses are collected to help the needy.

Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions’ most popular activities. Although the program was officially adopted by the association in 1994, Lions have been collecting glasses for more than 80 years.

Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.
If you should have used eyeglasses and hearing aids and would like to donate them, they can be dropped off at the following locations:
