About Us
To provide vision screening, eye exams, and glasses to those in need in Alaska and worldwide.

In furtherance of this mission the Vision Center collects, sanitizes, records prescriptions and packages about 25,000 pairs of used and discarded glasses annually. The glasses are distributed to communities in Alaska and around the world through various mission teams. In addition to eye exams given on sight, vision screening is provided at village community health fairs and in schools.

The Aurora Borealis Lions Eyeglass Recycling and Vision Center Foundation operates on an annual budget of about $50,000. The sources of income include private donations, fund raising activities and community grants. Expenses include laboratory maintenance and utilities, postage for glasses sent to missions, and purchases of glasses when no recycled glasses fit a client's prescription. Various professional services are donated to the clinic by optometrists, ophthalmologists, and opticians.
