Usable Glasses Give New Life.  Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses; yet millions living in low and middle income countries as well as in the U.S. lack access to basic eye care services.  Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and therefore collect usable glasses to support the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.
The Lions Club collects used eyeglasses which are turned in monthly for delivery to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center (LERC) in Conroe, Texas.  This Center is operated by the Conroe Noon Lions Club and staffed solely by Lion volunteers. 
Our Club currently has collection boxes at the following sites:
