Drop Off Locations for Eyeglasses & Hearing Aid Donations
Wondering what to do with your used eyeglass frames? Don’t throw them away!
We accept both prescription and non-prescription eyewear, in both adults’ and children’s sizes. Drop off your used lens, frames, sunglasses & hearing aids to any of the convenient donation locations listed below to help our efforts of serving those in need.
Donating eyeglass frames is an easy way to help people who can’t function normally because they can’t see well. Most world blindness is unnecessary. Nearly 700 million people have avoidable blindness or impaired vision that could easily be helped with an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Instead, they have to live with functional blindness — the inability to see well enough to do basic everyday tasks, such as reading, writing, cooking and earning a living.
Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions living in low and middle income countries lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable glasses in their communities to support the Lions Recycle For Sight Program.
Lions Clubs International volunteers collect old eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses. We clean and repair the used eyewear, which is then distributed to people who can’t afford to buy their own.
