Learn how to recycle your old eyglasses.

Eyeglasses help support your eyes to see items that you would not be able to see without them. Eyeglasses come in different medical strengths and styles. When your eyesight changes, you might need to see an optometrist to prescribe new glasses. When you get a new pair, you can donate your old pair to charity. In Los Angeles, there are a few places where you can donate your old eyeglasses.
