Announcement

Ophthalmology Associates of Glen Cove and the Northwell Health Eye Institute are excited to announce their collaboration with the Zucker Hofstra/Northwell School of Medicine and ReSpectacle, a nonprofit organization that uses the power of the internet to facilitate redistribution of quality, used eyeglasses to underserved communities worldwide. Over the last decade ReSpectacle has repurposed over 50,000 pairs of eyeglasses and placed them into the hands of recipients in need.

Through a partnership with the Northwell Eye Institute/Hofstra School of Medicine ReSpectacle Chapter, we are supporting the effort to bring the gift of improved vision across the globe. We would like to invite you to participate in this initiative by donating any unused or gently used eyeglasses through our donation box. Kindly bring any eligible glasses in a case or Ziploc bag and place them in the box located in our waiting room. We will process and send your donated glasses to ReSpectacle to be made available on their website.

By donating your glasses, you will support disadvantaged populations by providing access to impactful vision correction to improve quality of life. We encourage you to visit www.respectacle.org to learn more and thank you in advance for your contributions.
