Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions most popular activities.
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.
Starting an eyeglass collection in your community can be an easy and rewarding activity that will raise your club's visibility and provide your fellow Lions with a great deal of satisfaction in serving others.
LCI provides a variety of tools to help you inform your community about your projects. Check out these resources and tailor them to your club's needs.
In the United States.Walmart stores with Vision Centers have LCI/Walmart co-branded eyeglass collection boxes to facilitate the ease of eyeglass donations from the public. Glasses collected at these locations are sent by Walmart to designated official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.
