Every year countless contact lenses and pieces of blister
packaging end up in landfill sites across the UK.
The Acuvue Contact Lens Recycle Programme allows us to recycle your contact lenses and blister packaging, preventing them from ending up in landfill.
Bring in your used lenses and packaging and pop them in the recycling box in reception - as demonstrated here by one of our Optometrists Mark Nelson.
By supporting this scheme, you will not only help the environment, but the waste you recycle will also help to fund schools and charitable organisations.
For more information on the scheme, please see the Terracycle website.
