There are a variety of places to drop off prescription eyewear in good repair that is no longer useful or applicable to personal prescriptions. The Lion’s Club collects eyewear for distribution to those who need, but cannot afford, eyeglasses. In addition, many optical and vision centers will accept used glasses.
