Help other people see better by donating your old pairs of eyeglasses when you get new ones.

Every year a trip to the optometrist is recommended. The lucky people will just go for the exam. Others will require a pair of eyeglasses. In Canada, eight in 10 people between the ages of 18 and 55 wear eyeglasses, three in 10 use contact lenses. Most people change their glasses every two or three years.
