Wanted: Used Eye Glasses and Eye Drops

Every year we hand out nearly a 1000 pair of glasses and almost as many eye drops. This year we have already collect, bar-coded and entered in about half of what we need. So, if you have old glasses or can set up a spot to collect them (church, office, work, club, school, etc.), please do. The BIGGEST need right now would be eye drops. You can purchase the generic eye drops at Wal-Mart for about $1 a bottle. Look for the words "artificial tears." Should you prefer, you can send more (since it's cheaper to mail) and let us know it's for "eye drops." Due to the amount of dust in the air and the nearly constant sunshine, drops are needed by about every patient. thanks, - ty jones
