We are a nonprofit organization focused on ending the enormous waste of contact lenses worldwide and on providing underprivileged kids with access to free, quality contact lenses. We will also accept unused contact lens solution and contact lens cases.

Simply donate all of your unused contact lenses that no longer match your prescription, contact lens cases and unused contact solution and we'll do the rest. We are always looking for volunteers to help spread the reach of our mission. Please contact us if you would like to organize your own local DonateContacts contact lens drive. We're excited to have you join the team! Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Ever since I started wearing contacts, day to day tasks have felt easier and more natural than having to wear glasses all the time. I realized how much I benefit from wearing contacts, and I’ve decided to help others with the same issue. There are so many contacts that go to waste because of prescription changes, and so many underprivileged children in need. DonateContacts is a charity dedicated to helping kids in need gain access to free contacts, which can impact their daily lives in a positive way.
My name is Lila Millen. Though I don’t use contacts, I do wear glasses. I recognize the need to see and understand the struggles of not having the ability to. It makes me so happy to be a part of this and give less fortunate people the opportunity to see the world. I am so proud to be a part of DonateContacts.
My name is Mattie Lambdin, imagine for a minute what life would be like if your vision was impaired and could be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses but could not afford them. Growing up in the Eye Care industry and hearing stories my mom would tell of helping those that could not see inspired me to help others. I have always been very passionate about helping underprivileged children. I love this organization because I get to do just that.
I've been wearing contacts since I was 13 years old and my prescription is always changing before I finish the lenses for my old prescription. I am always left with lots of unused contact lenses that no longer match my prescription because of this. After talking to many of my peers and realizing that they too are often in the same situation, I decided to start this charitable organization to end the waste of contact lenses and help underprivileged kids obtain free contact lenses.
