If you wear corrective lenses or hearing aids, you know how expensive they can be. For many, seeing or hearing clearly is a luxury. Even on sale, a pair of eyeglasses can cost hundreds of dollars, and hearing aids can cost thousands. What do you do with your eyeglasses or hearing aids when you can't use them any longer?
The Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation, part of Lions International, has been helping people with vision and/or hearing loss for more than 35 years. Here in the Phoenix area, the organization makes it easy to donate your used eyeglasses and hearing aids so that others may make use of them. The donation program for Lions Sight and Hearing is ongoing throughout the year.
Another program that is underway from now through September 2012 is being sponsored by Southwestern Eye Center. Valley residents can help give the gift of sight by donating their gently used prescription eyeglasses to one of Southwestern Eye Center's 24 locations in the Phoenix area. Collected glasses will be used for Sight Day on September 29, 2012 when free eye care services will be provided to 200 kids, teens and adults from the local Salvation Army. Pre-selected patients will get a free exam and a pair of gently used glasses that best match their prescription. Donations may be made Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about Annual Sight Day on September 29th, visit. Southwestern Eye Center online.
