Donating Used Eyeglasses
Thank you for your interest in donating used eyeglasses to AMIGOS Eye Care!
TWe clean all donated eyeglasses as well as verify all lens powers – it is NOT necessary to know your prescription to donate your used eyeglasses to AMIGOS Eye Care.
TAMIGOS Eye Care accepts prescription as well as non-prescription eyeglasses. Non-prescription sunglasses with UV protection are also needed for areas near the equator where patients are at greater risk for cataracts.
