The Canyon Lake Lions Club is collecting unwanted eyeglasses, sunglasses, and reading glasses. A donation box is located on the entry table at the country club.
Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions living in low and middle-income countries lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable glasses to support the Lions Recycle For Sight Program.
The glasses are shipped to the nearest Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center where trained volunteers sort, clean, and determine the prescription strengths of the glasses. The glasses are then packaged and stored until they are required for eyeglass dispensing missions.
At the mission site, eye care professionals and trained volunteers perform vision screenings and dispense the appropriate recycled glasses, free of charge, to children and adults in need.
Glasses that are not suitable for reuse are recycled for scrap, with the earnings benefitting local Lions projects.
