For over 80 Years, individual Lions clubs and districts in the U.S., Canada and several other developed countries have collected used, unwanted eyeglasses, sunglasses and hearing aids for re-distribution to the poor in developing nations. Patients search through the array of recycled eyeglasses and find the pair that best fits their eyesight correction requirements, much like those who buy "reading" glasses at the drug store.

When a notable amount of glasses and hearing aids are collected, Lion Rod Irey takes them to the Lions of Illinois Foundation in Sycamore, Illinois. They in turn send the eyeglasses to Lions International for shipment overseas to be given to needy families.

In FY 2019 Lion Rod Irey brought 2,000 pairs of eye glasses and several hearing aids down to the Illinois Lions headquarters. They will be examined by the Lions and then donated to people in need around the world.
