Recycled Glasses Donation
Got glasses? We can put them to great use! Old, new, unknown prescription? It doesn’t matter!
Using a lensometer, we can determine the strength of a prescription pair of glasses. Each pair is cleaned and refurbished. Then, we work with local organizations to match them to someone with a similar prescription.
Don’t let your old glasses collect dust! They can be mailed to us at:
Seeing is Believing
2025 E 17th St.
Idaho Falls, ID 83404
Recycled glasses can be mailed via any mailing service.
We encourage a $1 donation included with glasses mailed to us for the cost of cleaning and refurbishing.
