Dispose of Eyeglasses Right

Eyeglasses can be donated to local community service organizations that will distribute them to people in need. National organizations like Lions Clubs, OneSightVSP Global Eyes of Hope and other service groups accept them for reuse. 


Lions in Sight, located in California and Nevada, accepts eyeglasses, sunglasses (prescription and non-prescription), broken eyeglass parts, and clip-on sunglasses with metal parts through a mailback program. See details

For donation opportunities, see the list below.
