Their mission

To enable people living in poverty to access affordable glasses and eye care.

Recycle your old glasses

at Brady Opticians

At Brady Opticians, we collect old spectacles, which are then recycled to extract precious metals. Income received from recycling is then used to provide much-needed funds to support the work of Vision Aid Overseas.
We would be grateful if you could dig out any old glasses that have been tucked away in a drawer, or which are no longer in use, and bring them to our practice.

Our aim is to collect over 1000 pairs of glasses. The funds raised will enable opticians to visit outreach centres in Africa to examine eyes and dispense glasses.
