Millions of people wear prescription contact lenses every day. Avid users of contact lenses might find several pairs of unused/unopened and unexpired circle lenses lying uselessly in their stash. In case you recently had a successful Lasik surgery, or a change in your prescription you can ingeniously redistribute your spare contacts you no longer plan to use. According to WHO report; approximately 517 million people are visually impaired due to unaffordability of corrective treatment. There are dozens of trustworthy reliable humanitarian organizations that dispense contact lenses and eye wear to those in need.
Prescription contact lenses that are safely enclosed & sealed pack in their vials with a minimum of remaining 6 months expiration can be safely passed out to the poor. These human rights organizations also accept glasses, contact lens cases and contact lens solution.
Before Donating your Circle Contact Lenses, Make Sure …
- Your contact lenses meet the acceptance standards of the organization you want to donate your contact lenses to.
- Your contacts are not substandard, counterfeit or cheap; purchased from beauty shops, flea markets etc. etc.
- You have the original packaging intact that came with your contact lenses.
- Safely bubble wrap your contact lenses & mark “FRAGILE” over the envelope before you ship/post your lenses.
