Reading glasses
The Lions Club of Australia's Recycle for Sight program repairs, regrades and distributes donated reading glasses and sunglasses to people in need at no expense to the recipient. The program has donated over 2.5 million pairs of glasses to third world countries over the last 13 years.

We offer collection points as part of the Recycle for Sight Program. You can donate your unwanted reading glasses and sunglasses in the Community Recycling Stations at our selected facilities.
