Still & Bedford Opticians Bournemouth

Donate Old Glasses

Your old glasses can bring the gift of sight to other people around the world. We collect glasses on behalf of Vision Aid Overseas.

We accept spectacles, spectacle lenses and magnifiers (including any broken items). There is a collection basket in the practice so bring along any old pairs next time you visit.

What happens to them?

The items are broken down into their raw materials and recycled. The proceeds from the recycling help fund the charities international programs where people have their eyes examined and are given the suitable glasses.
