Eyeglass Recycling

An unused pair of specs can be found in a drawer in just about any home . That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person’s life.


Lions Recycle for Sight

That’s why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help.

Throughout the year, Lions collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centres. There, the volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses.  Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.

Eyeglass Recycling – How You Can Help

If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, you can donate them at our collection centres below. We can accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children’s glasses are especially needed.
