Used Spectacle Collection

We collect used spectacles from local opticians and send them free of charge to the UK headquarters of the charity Vision Aid Overseas. Any vintage spectacles in good condition are sold via an on-line store to specialist collectors. The rest are recycled in this country to obtain any valuable materials, and  any income generated through this process is used to fund overseas projects providing eye care to deprived communities.
