“For 1.1 billion people in the world is a blur. We believe access to vision care is a basic human right, because clear vision can help people improve their own lives.
SARATOGA LIONS “ONESIGHT” SPECIAL PRICE EYEGLASS VOUCHER PROGRAM
The Saratoga Lions Club is proud to sponsor the OneSight Eyeglass Voucher Program (www.onesight.org). The program is designed to assist those in need with no financial means to acquire eyeglasses. With financial support from the Saratoga Lions Club, the OneSight Program can help individuals improve independent living by providing the eyeglasses for school, work and everyday activities.
“For 1.1 billion people in the world is a blur. We believe access to vision care is a basic human right, because clear vision can help people improve their own lives. Children who see better learn better. Adults who see clearly produce more at work, allowing them to better support their families.” ~ OneSight, “The Global Vision Care Crisis”, www.onesight.org

HELP US GIVE THE GIFT OF SIGHT
Collecting and recycling eye glasses and hearing aids is one of the longtime traditions of The Saratoga Springs Lions Club. One of the easiest ways you can become a part of our mission of serving others, is to donate your old eye glasses and hearing aids that will help someone see the world and hear it’s sounds.
DROP OFF YOUR OLD GLASSES AT ONE OF OUR COLLECTION PPOINTS
We collect eye glasses and hearing aids at drop boxes located throughout Saratoga County. There are 18 locations spread throughout Saratoga County including Wilton Mall, YMCA’s, Saratoga Hospital, and Wesley.
We then have a sorting party (photos above) after which the glasses & aids are transported to our Lions friends in the Lions New Jersey, Eye Glass Recycling Center.
FROM THERE THE GLASSES ARE DISTRIBUTED TO NEED AREA ALL OVER THE WORLD !
The New Jersey Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center collects and recycles over one million pair of eyeglasses each year.
We help over 400,000 children and adults around the world have better vision, to improve their quality of life.
