VSP Vision Care Clients: Contact your VSP sales team member for an Eye Make A Difference® donation box and download a poster that you can display to collect glasses, which can be shipped to us for free using your own packaging and a prepaid shipping label whenever the box is full.

VSP Members: If you have VSP vision coverage, ask your VSP network doctor if they are accepting donations of gently used eyewear. Please note: tax receipts are not available for eyewear donated.

Eye Doctors and Optometric Organizations: Request a donation of new or used eyewear for an upcoming charitable outreach event or mission trip where eye doctors will provide access to vision care for people in need. If you are a VSP network doctor’s office, visit the VSP Provider Hub for links to set up an eyewear donation station in your practice to collect your patients’ gently used glasses and ship them to us for free.

Community Organizations: Download and display a flier and any sturdy box to collect donations, which can be shipped to us at VSP Global, Attn: Eye Make A Difference, 11340 White Rock Rd Ste 200, Rancho Cordova, CA 95742.
