Pass On Old Reading Glasses

If you can't use your store bought reading glasses anymore, you can pass then on to friends. Unlike prescription ones, they won't make anyone else dizzy. I keep on passing on my old extras to my friend who always is losing them!

check and see if there is a lions club in your area. they take prescription glasses and get them redone for folks that can't afford them. if you know anyone that has eye problems and can't afford a doctor refer them to a lions club. they will take the most needy first and they can get them help.

Our local Lions club takes donated eyeglasses and has them refurbished.

Then the glasses are donated to the poor who cannot otherwise afford eyewear.

This is a good idea. I get my reading glasses at the Dollar Store and seem to buy a different strength each time, so I have a few pairs I'm no longer using.
