Recycle your spectacles

Vision Aid Overseas runs a nationwide spectacle collection scheme which operates to raise money for our work. Recycled spectacles are not sent overseas.

Vision Aid Overseas will ensure spectacles are recycled in an environmentally-friendly way and income generated from recycling is used to support our programmes overseas.

Optical practices all over the UK and Ireland can collect spectacles for Vision Aid Overseas and send them to us free of charge using DX courier services.

Find out where you can recycle your spectacles below.
