We no longer send second-hand glasses overseas. When the donated glasses are received at our warehouse in Crawley, they are:

 

  • Hand sorted by our two Warehouse Assistants for recycling

  • The glasses are recycled for their precious metal content (gold frames), any retro or vintage glasses are sold on our eBay shop or to specialist buyers

  • The income generated through the recycling process supports our eye care programmes in our partner countries, delivering eye care services and low-cost new glasses to those in need
