HomeLions Club Recycle Eyeglasses Program
If you are an ADULT and are in need of eyeglasses and can't afford them, then you may qualify for help. The Amarillo Downtown Lions Club has partnered with "Heal the City Clinic" which has a program that may be able to help. Contact them at:
School age children are NOT seen at the clinic.
If your SCHOOL AGED CHILD needs eyeglasses, contact their school's nurse. The Lions Club has a separate program for children through the Lions High Plains Eyeglasses Program.

Donate your used Eyeglasses to the Lions Club Eyeglasses Program - Lions Recycle for Sight. To help those in need we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program and everyone can help. There are two yellow drop off Mailboxes, one at 8th and S. Taylor near the Happy State Bank ATM and one near the food court at West Gate Mall to drop of used eyeglasses.
Here are locations in Amarillo that will accept your used eyeglasses for the Lions Club:
Optometrist Offices at Walmart (45th & Coulter) & Walmart (Tascosa Road)
The vision center in both Sams locations in Amarillo,
Amarillo Family Eye Clinic
Coulter Drive Optical
Eyeglass World Optical,
St. Luke Eye Institute
Wolflin Vision Clinic
Stanton Optical in Western Crossing on I-40
Texas Tech School of Pharmacy
Texas Department of Transportation (Employees only)
Owens Corning (Employees only)
Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.
