UK Optical Shops are a collection site for donated glasses. Lions Club volunteers collect old eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses. They clean and repair the used eyewear, which is then distributed to people who cannot afford to buy their own. They accept both prescription and non-prescription eyewear, in both adults' and children's sizes. To learn more visit the Lions Club website.
