Recycle old glasses and help others see more clearly

About 80%

...of what a child learns is processed through their sight. Spectacles can make a real difference in the quality of learning and life for young people starting out in life.

During October 2019 we are collecting spectacles for recycling. 

One of our guests is going to Zambia to help train eye health specialists with Vision Aid. This charity helps people without the means to buy glasses see again.


How do you help 12 million children worldwide who struggle to learn because they struggle to see?

Throughout  October we will be a collection centre for spectacles to be recycled in support of Vision Aid Overseas. Simply drop your spectacles into 


The Salon Of Chi – 16 Reading Road Henley On Thames RG9 1AG


and we wil forward them onto Vision Aid Overseas representatives

About Vision Aid

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), restoring sight is one of the most cost effective health interventions to reduce poverty. Without affordable eye care services, people living with poor eyesight often leave their condition to go untreated which can make their eyesight worse and can, if left untreated for long enough, lead to permanent blindness.
