EYE GLASS RECYCLING

What will the Lions Club do with my Eyeglasses?
Lions help to conserve sight by providing usable eyeglasses to children and adults throughout the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism).
Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in undeveloped nations lack access to basic eye care services.
Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to fight the problem with the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.
Donated eyeglasses can help millions to experience corrected vision for the first time, enabling them to read, attend school, gain employment and take care of their families.
Lions Clubs worldwide collect and recycle more than 20 million pairs of glasses each year.
Aspley Lions Club was also instrumental in the development and implementation of the telemedicine program for Retinopathy of Prematurity Screening at the Mater Mothers Hospital.
