Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time
In just about any home, you can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used. That same pair of glasses 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 Club volunteers and partner Opticians collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.
