    RecycleFSColorThe Need for Glasses –153 Million Reasons Lions Recycle for Sight

    According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses.

    Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don't have glasses. They can't learn, because reading is difficult. They can't work to the best of their ability, because they can't see clearly.

    It costs Lions less than US$0.08 to provide a pair of recycled eyeglasses and change someone's life.

    For children, clear vision means a better education, healthier development and a better quality of life. For adults, it means greater employment opportunity and economic strength. For seniors it means less dependence on others.

    Lions clubs collect millions of eyeglasses each year to address the need for glasses, making eyeglass recycling one of our most popular activities.

    Free for You – Priceless to Them

    Donate glasses and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.

    Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. Here's how you can donate glasses and help.

    Drop Your Eyeglasses in Lions Collection Boxes

    You can drop off your usable eyewear at Lions-sponsored collection boxes in your community. Typical locations include libraries, schools, community centers, places of worship, coffee shops, optometrist offices and other public locations where communities socialize and get together.

    We are happy to collect your eye glasses at the Lions Center 10346 Pennsylvania Ave Bonita Springs Fl 34135
