Please send both plastic and metal frames. Include broken glasses and lenses but put all loose lenses together in a plastic bag. If shipping used hearing aids place all of them in a separate plastic bag also.
DO NOT send the eye glass cases. We cannot sanitize them.
Pack eye glasses in a sturdy corrugated box. Seal box with tape. Be sure mailing label is legible and Include your return address.
Rather than store glasses for a long time, send as soon as possible to the Lion Eyeglass Recycling Center. Time, extreme temperature and weather conditions can cause damage and the frames to become brittle, to the point where we must send them directly to recycling.
Used eyeglasses are of no commercial value; therefore, choose the least expensive means of shipping to the recycling center. Label the box, “No commercial value”
COD shipments are NOT accepted.
