Donate your old glasses
PersonalEYES is working to improve the quality of life for some of the poorest people in the world by collecting prescription or non-prescription glasses or sunglasses.
An estimated 250 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have a pair of glasses.
Unfortunately, many third world countries lack the resources and funding to provide even the most basic eye care. People of all ages struggle with simple everyday tasks, and find it difficult to gain employment, because they are branded as ‘blind’. In many cases, however, all it would take is one pair of glasses to turn their life around.
If you have glasses you no longer need, please mail them in a padded bag to:
