Saw this on another site passing it along.
ReSpectacle offers completely free prescription glasses. These glasses are pre-owned but in excellent condition. Just let them know your prescription and browse their site. Please keep in mind that they only giveaway a certain number of free glasses a day. You can also order up to 3 per year.

Old one but a good one. We've used this website for emergency back-up glasses when ours have broken and unable to get to the eye doctor right away. You can also donate your old glasses to them!

I'm not sure but they show you the available glasses in your prescription so if you just enter a random number you probably won't be able to see out of the glasses you get. If your not able to get a hold of your optometrist to get your prescription I would try to get it as close as you can remember.

Just a reminder, as a social worker, that these organizations are super helpful for people who cannot afford necessary things, like glasses. If you need backup glasses and have ten bucks you can find some other options on here. If you can't, then use this resource.

A friendly reminder from the volunteers of ReSpectacle

Used glasses are not for everyone.

A pair of glasses from ReSpectacle is unlikely to give you the same quality of vision, comfort & style that you can otherwise get with a pair of custom-made glasses.

This website was designed to be used by people who have no other means of getting life-changing vision correction - please use it judiciously so that this resource is sustainable for those who need it most.

Yeh, because we are so rich and famous. You just had to be snarky, right.
