Cleaners such as Windex, ammonia or alcohol aren’t to be used on lenses or frames.
There are 2.1 million people in the world whose vision can be improved by eyeglasses, but a large portion of them don’t have access to eyewear. By working with the Lions Clubs International and VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity), EyeWorks is able to play a part in improving eyesight for the local community and for people in remote and underserved locations.
Collected eyeglasses are sorted into usable or unusable condition. Usable glasses are made available to optical missions around the world. Unusable glasses are processed for scrap and precious metal reclamation, which minimizes landfill waste. Dr. Barton Higley said “We’re looking to raise people’s awareness of the positive impact they can have by encouraging them to donate the eyeglasses that they’re not using. It can make a tremendous impact. For example, poor vision and academic challenges often go hand in hand. Seeing clearly can be a game-changer at any age.”
From March 16th-April 11th, when you donate a pair of prescription eyeglasses, EyeWorks will take 15% off your complete eyeglass purchase (Restrictions Apply). Contact lens wearer? EyeWorks also accepts packaging and contact lenses for recycling! Call them at 603-352-7803 to learn more.
