We take frame donations!

Donate old glasses

One of the most important aspects of my work is giving back to the local community. While I take a lot of pride in providing a professional service to my clients, ensuring they can see and look their best, part of being an optician involves helping those we can't aid directlyFor this reason, amongst others, I happily accept and send donated eyeglasses to Eyes of Hope®

Eyes of Hope® supports local communities around the globe through initiatives that provide access to eye care, eyewear, and disaster relief to places where they’re needed most. Together with VSP network doctors, to date, VSP Global has provided access to no-cost eye care and eyewear for more than 2 million people in need.

Eyes of Hope initiatives provide immediate access to eye exams and glasses for individuals in need, support optometrists delivering eye care to those in need globally, and improve sustainable access to eye care. They collect and distribute new and gently used eyewear to help people in need across the globe. Anyone can donate gently used glasses to join us.

How to donate: Bring your gently used eyeglasses in to me (David) in our optical department, or print a prepaid shipping label to ship them to Eyes of Hope for free. Please note that we can’t accept lenses, broken/damaged eyewear, or eyewear cases. Tax receipts are not available for eyewear donated.
