We are pleased to accept used spectacles for the Vision Aid Overseas charity. The spectacles are checked and measured, and if suitable, bagged up and taken overseas. Volunteer optometrists who test the eyes of the local people may then give those spectacles to a very grateful person who would otherwise have had to live life with poor sight. The spectacles sent overseas all need to be of very good quality- there is no point in giving someone a pair which will fall apart in a few months! If you have any pairs of specs which are no longer used, please consider giving them to this extremely worthwhile cause.
