Recycled Glasses

Got Glasses?

Don’t let unused glasses collect dust! Send them to us and let us put them to great use! About 1/3 of all the glasses we provide each year are recycled pairs of eyeglasses. We determine the prescription strength of each pair, refurbish and clean well-worn glasses, and match them with people with similar prescriptions. New or gently used pairs can have the lenses replaced with custom prescription lenses for a pair specific to each individual.

Glasses can be sent to us at the following address:

Seeing is Believing
11755 E. Peakview Ave. Suite 250
Englewood, CO 80111

We encourage those contributing well-worn eyeglasses to include $1 with their eyeglasses to help offset the cost of refurbishing the glasses. This is not required, but encouraged if possible.

  3. Do I need to do anything special to ship my glasses?
