The money generated helps provide eyecare in developing countires

The team in store would like to thank generous customers for donating old and unused glasses and frames as part of rhe Vision Aid Overseas campaign. 

Vision Aid Overseas

Vision Aid Overseas was founded in 1985 and has been helping some of the poorest people in the world to see properly for over 30 years. Whether you are a teacher in Ghana, a seamstress in Zambia, or a school pupil in Ethiopia, poor eye sight can have a devastating impact on your life and livelihood.

Eyecare in Developing Countries

Income generated from recycling old and used glasses is used to support programmes to help provide eyecare in developing countries overseas. 1 in 10 people in Africa can't see properly to learn and earn simply because they need glasses.

Taking Eye Health for Granted

In a counry where opticians' services are readily available, such as the UK, it is easy to take eye health for granted. In the developing world, the provision of optical services has a real impact on peoples' lives.
