Eye Make A Difference® is an eyewear donation program to help the 2 billion people globally who don’t have access to much-needed eyewear due to income, distance, or disaster. In 2017, nearly 12,000 gently used glasses donated by doctors, clients, and members were provided to VSP network doctors and optometric organizations for global mission trips. In addition, Marchon Eyewear donated 391,000 optical frames and sunglasses to charitable organizations in the U.S. and globally.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Donating your eyewear is easy! Simply:
- Order a free eyewear donation box using the Eyewear Donation Box form below and place it in a high-traffic area.
- Collect gently used prescription glasses, readers, and sunwear.
- When your box is full, package the donated glasses in a shipping box, and use the Ship Donated Glasses order form below to print a prepaid UPS shipping label.
VSP Global will work with Lions Clubs International to clean, refurbish, and label your donated glasses for VSP network doctors and schools of optometry to use on global eye care missions.
If you're a VSP network doctor, school of optometry (or an optometry student), or charitable organization, use the Eyewear for Global Mission Trips form below to request donated glasses or new optical frames.
