Frequently Asked Questions

How should I send you my old eyeglasses?

Mailing them via the United States Postal Service is the most cost-effective method. You can send them in an eyeglass case, or just wrap them in tissue or in a padded envelope.  You do not have to clean them or prep them in any way.

Can I send broken eyeglasses?

Yes! We gladly accept: Used eyeglasses (frames & lenses), Frames only (no lenses & broken lenses), Non-prescription Sunglasses (clip-ons and glasses) and Prescription Sunglasses. Children’s eyeglasses are especially needed. Both plastic and metal frames are needed.

Should I send eyeglass cases?

Not unless you are using them to protect the frames during mailing.  We do not need eyeglass cases on their own.

How do I make a monetary donation to EyeSightForAll.org?

Please mail a non-tax deductible check made to EyeSightForAll.  100% of your donation will provide eye care to patients living in extreme poverty.

Is my eyeglass donation to EyeSightForAll.org tax-deductible?
