Founded in 1987 by Dr. Wayne Cannon and incorporated in 1992, Lions In Sight has collected and recycled over 10 million pairs of eyeglasses. We have, in turn, distributed nearly 6.5 million pairs of eyeglasses to 67 countries.

Many thanks to those who donated their used or discontinued eyeglasses to our organization. Without your generosity we would not be able to do the work we do.
