Thanks Dr.  Esteban Sandoval  of Denver Eye Practice and Optical for being a collection location for used eyeglasses. Lions collect used eyeglasses.  They are taken to facilities where they are cleaned and the prescriptions are read.  They are then made available for mission trips going to other countries where eyesight care is lacking. You can find eyeglass collection boxes at just about any optical store and many medical facilities.  In addition, many churches and other locations participate in the program.  Go to for Recycle for Sight collection locations.
