Lions Club Recycle Eyeglasses Program
If you and an ADULT and are in need of eyeglasses and can't afford them then you may qualify for help. The Lions Club has partnered with "Heal the City Clinic" which has a program that may be able to help.
Contact them at:
firstname.lastname@example.org School age children are NOT seen at the clinic.
If your SCHOOL AGED CHILD needs eyeglasses, contact their school's nurse. The Lions Club has a separate program for children through the Lions High Plains Eyeglasses Program.

Lions Recycle for Sight
That's why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help. Most Optometrist Offices (Including those at Walmart) will take your donation. There are also two yellow drop off boxes, one at 8th and S.Taylor near the Happy State Bank ATM and one near the food court at West Gate Mall to drop off your donations. Thanks!
Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers 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.
Eyeglass Recycling – How You Can Help
Donate glasses and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.
Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. For more information click the button below.
