Overseas Glasses Program

Our Overseas Program distributes used glasses worldwide. We receive  donations of used glasses from all across the country. Our specially trained volunteering teams test and sort the glasses into different categories - after which we distribute the glasses through international charitable organizations and small medical missions. 

We can provide untested single vision glasses, untested bifocal glasses, non-prescription sunglasses, reading glasses and eyeglass cases depending on the stock we have on hand at any given time. In addition, we can supply empty frames, demonstration glasses, children’s glasses and sports glasses.

Please note that reading glasses will have the prescription either written on the upper corner of the lens or will be indicated on the temple/earpiece of the frame. 

New Eyes can only ship to mission contacts in the United States. We cannot ship glasses overseas.

If you would like to take glasses overseas, please complete our Used Glasses Request form below.
