Donate eyeglasses and sunglasses worldwide to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness.

Unite For Sight There is a worldwide need to donate eyeglasses.  The World Health Organization estimates that the eyesight of one-fourth of the world's population can be improved through the use of corrective lenses.  Lions Clubs Recycle For Sight
That translates to 500 million people who could easily have improved vision. 

Recycling a pair of eyeglasses costs as little as US 8 cents; however, the expense for correcting poor vision is astronomical to those in developing countries. 

In many countries, an eye exam costs as much as a month’s wages. Affording these huge costs is hard enough, but seeing a doctor is very difficult. There is often only one doctor for hundreds of thousands of people.

Poor eyesight that is left untreated can cause blindness and disable adults into unemployment. In many developing areas, there is little or no choice but to accept this very unfortunate fate.

Consider the following, and please donate sunglass and old eyeglasses if you can:
  • Over 1 billion people in developing countries need eyeglasses but cannot afford them.
  • Over 4 million pairs of eyeglasses are thrown away each year in North America.
  • 25% of the global population needs eyeglasses.
  • 50% of children in institutions for the blind in Africa would be able to read normal or large print if they had eyeglasses.
  • The price for glasses in Benin and other African countries can exceed three months' average salary.
Unite For Sight is an organization that empowers communities worldwide to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness.  One way this is accomplished is through the distribution of used eyewear from people like you. Please donate eyeglasses!
