Opticians Sjónarhóll in Hafnarfjörður handles collection for the project “Vision Aid Overseas“. They accept all eyeglasses, reading glasses, walking glasses, children's glasses, bifocals and sunglasses with or without correction. The glasses are shipped to England, where they are cleaned, measured and labelled, and then sent to Africa, where British ophthalmologists and optometrists go regularly, usually at their own expense, to measure people's eyesight and find suitable glasses for them.
