What To Do With Your Old Glasses

Revant sees great potential for change in expanding what environmentally conscious eyewear can be. In addition to continuing our work in researching new sustainable materials and solutions, we also want to include our community in not only reducing the consumption of our planet's resources by extending the life of already existing high-quality frames.

Here are a few ways you can extend the life of your eyewear:


While you might be ready to move on from your old daily wear frames, give them new life by refitting them with Revant replacement lenses for a brand new pair of adventure frames ready to be your trusted swim and sand shades. Doing so will give your old frames a victory lap while getting rugged and ensuring your new frames stay scratch-free.


According WHO statistics, over 120 million people suffer from uncorrected refractive errors. In most cases, their vision can be restored with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. This lack of access to essential healthcare denies both children and adults from opportunities to education, employment and a better quality of life.

Many nation-wide chains are ready to receive your old frames with no hassle. Stop by your local LensCrafters, Target Optical, Sears Optical, Pearle Vision, Walmart, ReSpectacle or Lion’s Club and they will find a new face for your frames to call home.

You can also print a free shipping label and send to VSP Global at no cost. 


Most civic-funded recycling programs are fully equipped to process and recycle your frames. This option is ideal for heavily damaged frames that are beyond repair. Simply separate your lenses from your frames and sort accordingly. 


Purchasing wisely can also go a long way with conserving our planet’s resources. Invest in high-quality frames and lenses that are timelessly stylish and built to last. Be equipped for any setting with easily changeable lenses that turn your frames into a new kind of survival kit. Doing so will extend their life and discourage needless consumption.
