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 Ed Lambke of the Wheaton Lions Club 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.

On April 30, 2016 Lion Ed brought 1,936 pairs of eyeglasses, 9 Hearing Aids, 1 Cell Phone and 1 lb. of metal keys to our state Lions headquarters.
