Donate your old spectacles to help Vision Aid Overseas

To celebrate World Sight Day 2018, Lunettes Opticians are collecting old unwanted spectacles to help support the work of Vision Aid Overseas (VAC).

The donated second-hand glasses can raise valuable funds from the precious metals content (gold frames) and retro or vintage glasses that are sold to specialist buyers. VAO also recycle plastic glasses.

The income generated through the recycling process enables VAO to deliver sustainable eye care services in partner countries by:

  • Establishing vision centres so that there are locally based eye care services to provide affordable eye tests and new glasses to all patients regardless of circumstances
  • Training local eye care works so that there are skilled professionals in countries to deliver quality eye care services at all times
  • Delivering eye care services to remote and isolated communities so that they can reach the poorest and most vulnerable people

If you have any old second hand unwanted glasses please drop them in to one of our collection boxes in one of our practices. We will arrange to send all of your donated spectacles to vision Aid Overseas.
