Eye See…Eye Learn
Eye See…Eye Learn is an initiative developed by the Alberta Association of Optometrists to provide free eyeglasses for kindergarten-aged children when prescribed by a doctor of optometry within the province. No one wants to see a child’s potential hampered by poor vision. This is another positive incentive to get your child’s vision professionally checked at that all-important 5 or 6-year mark.

We Are a Lions Eyeglasses Recycling Center: Changing Lives, One Pair At a Time
In just about any home, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.
That's why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help.
Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength, and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle-income communities where they will have the greatest impact.
Eyeglass Recycling – How You Can Help
Donate glasses and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read, an adult succeed in their job, or a senior maintain his or her independence. You can help provide your community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.
Every day our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. Learn more about the Lions and their programs by visiting their website.
