Social Responsiblity

We’re proud to support Vision Aid Overseas, a charity that works in the poorest parts of Sub-Saharan Africa to ensure that basic eye care is available for all.

Your old glasses can be donated where they will be recycled, with the income generated through the recycling process enabling VAO to deliver sustainable eye care services in partner countries:

  • Establishing Vision Centres so that there are locally based eye care services to provide affordable eye tests and new glasses to all patients regardless of circumstance
  • Training local eye care workers so that there are skilled professionals in our partner countries to deliver quality eye care services at all times
  • Delivering eye care services to remote and isolated communities so that the poorest and most vulnerable people can be reached

We will be pleased to offer a £5 discount of your next glasses purchase when you recycle your old pair.
