    Free for You – Priceless to Them

    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. Here's how you can donate glasses and help.

     

    Drop Your Eyeglasses in Lions Collection Boxes

    You can drop off your usable eye wear at Lions-sponsored collection boxes in your community. Typical locations include libraries, schools, community centers, places of worship, coffee shops, optometrist offices and other public locations where communities socialize and get together. For information specific to locations in your community.e have donation boxes at the Thrift Store, Eye Clinic and at various retail and medical offices throughout Bonita Springs, Esero, and Naples.

  • Eye Clinic

    In 2008, the Bonita Springs Lions Club elected to commit its resources to the creation of a free independent eye clinic.
    The Club has been a leader in funding eye care in Lee County and surrounding areas, and the Clinic is an important expansion to its mission.
    The facility, which is housed on the campus of The Bonita Springs Lions Club, provides comprehensive eye care for adults and children who fall below the poverty level and are uninsured.

  • Lions Eye Glass Recycling

    recycleAccording to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses.

    Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don't have glasses. They can't learn, because reading is difficult. They can't work to the best of their ability, because they can't see clearly.
    It costs Lions less than $0.08 to provide a pair of recycled eyeglasses and change someone's life.
