Approximately 161 million people in this world are visually disabled or blind and approximately 2 billion people need eyeglasses. Unfortunately, in developing countries, most of the people cannot afford proper eye care. This limits their vision, their ability to work and their quality of life. Your old eyeglasses can literally change a life.
The Lions In Sight program begins with local Lions clubs such as our club 'Leones en Accion" interacting with the citizens of our community. We collect eyeglasses from the public and send them to our collection center in Vallejo, California. The collected eyeglasses are sorted, cleaned, processed and packaged for delivery to developing nations around the world.
