Spectacle Recycling

Title Photo

In just about every home, one can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used.

Tallaght Lions have collected 1500 pair of unwanted spectacles through the local Churches, ICA Clubs and Specsavers in the Square.

Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, prescription sunglasses, VDU glasses, plastic frames, metal frames, broken frames and frames with

only 1 lens. In fact just about everything! Children's glasses ear especially needed. Thanks to DPD the boxes of spectacles were transport to the

Cichester Lion Club in England “free of charge”. Spectacles from Clubs in Ireland and the British Isles have been collecting, cleaning, sorting

and grading by prescription strength since 1980. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where

they will have the greatest impact. Your old pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.

Imagine if you could help a child read, an adult succeed in his job or a senior maintain their independence!!
