Weekly Activity: Lensometer Training & Use

sign-Lions Recycle for Sight

Volunteers needed to help measure used eyeglass lens strength

Lensometer training & use continues on Tuesdays, from 9:00am-11am, and 11:00am-1pm. Six volunteers are needed per shift.

About lensometer trainings

A lensometer is used to measure the strength of each lens in a donated pair of glasses, so that we can label and sort the used eyeglasses to be given to someone in need. We have many thousands of pairs of glasses to be tested and labeled.

Help sort donated eyeglasses

Additional volunteers can also help sort and clean donated eyeglasses (the steps that occur before measuring the prescription with a lensometer). We sort donated eyeglasses to pick out the pairs that are not scratched or broken and can be reused as is. The broken eyeglasses are recycled.
