Thank you for the glasses that you recently sent to Vision Aid Overseas.
As you may already know, Vision Aid Overseas no longer sends second glasses overseas. Instead, we recycle the second-hand glasses for their precious metal content and any vintage glasses are cleaned and sold on our eBay shop or to specialist dealers. The income generated from our recycling scheme helps us to continue to provide a sustainable solution that delivers quality eye care services and low-cost brand-new glasses, from locally trained eye care workers, to people in need. To find out more about how we recycle, click here.
