Collect old spectacles & sunglasses

Even cheap basic sunglasses will still block significant levels of UV light. We collect used spectacles for reading and seeing in the distance, along with sunglasses and distribute these to the people attending our clinics. The patients are very grateful, as often there are no Optometrist/Optician services available in their area and they can not afford the cost of transport to a larger island to access Optometrists/Opticians.
As a volunteer, if you are able to collect old spectacles and sunglasses from friends or Optometrists/Opticians in your area, this would be most welcomed. Progressive lenses and bifocals are not so suitable, as these are generally specific to individual's needs. Lubricating eye drops are always useful also.
