Throughout the year eyeglasses no longer being used are collected by the Ballston Spa Lions Club and sent overseas to Lions International operated sight clinics. After a vision test each patient receives prescription appropriate lenses and frames at no cost. To improve lives through good vision and to prevent blindness is the primary mission of the Lions Club.
Collection boxes for eyeglasses can be found at the following Ballston Spa, Malta and Milton locations:
* Ballston Spa National Bank, 87 Front Street
* Ballston Spa National Bank, 344 Rowland Street
* Ballston Spa Public Library, 21 Milton Avenue
* Burnt Hills Optical, 793 Rt 50
* Malta Community Center, 1 Bayberry Drive
* Pioneer Bank, 10 Kendall Way
* Round Lake Public Library, 31 Wesley Avenue
