If you care enough to recycle, we can help!
Bring your recyclable vision items into our office, and we’ll take care of the rest!
We have a donation box in our office!
Bring your used glasses to the office. We have a collection box for the Lions Club “Recycle Your Sight” program. The donated glasses are measured and then distributed to people who match the prescription. Your donation can help a child to be successful in school, allow an adult to get a job, or a keep a senior citizen living independently.
We accept any type of glasses: distance, reading and sunglasses too! Safety glasses are also welcome. If you have a glasses case, we can accept those too. But don’t worry if you no longer have the case, we will wrap them so they arrive at their destination safelysisipisi.ccsisipisi.ccsisipisi.ccsisipisi.cc.
CONTACT LENS PACKAGING:
While you may be aware that the contact lens boxes can be recycled through your municipal recycling program, did you know that the blister packs can be recycled too?
Recycle your contact lens packaging!
Our office takes part in a recycling program that accepts specialty packaging…including the foil and plastic of blister packs. If you wear daily contacts, you are throwing out two containers each day. Multiply that times 30 days/month, 365 days/year…it adds up! Especially when you consider how many patients wear contacts,
Don’t put them in the trash! Collect your discarded containers and bring them into the office. We will send them to our recycling program, and eliminate all of that waste. Recycling small things can make a big difference.
PLUS…for every qualifying shipment a donation will be made to Optometry Giving Sight. This nonprofit organization works to prevent blindness and impaired vision for those who do not have access to eye exams and glasses/contacts. For more info, visit: http://www.givingsight.org
Partner with Moran Eye Associates in recycling.
Working together, we can make a difference!

Congratulations to Jagger Bolton, Eagle Scout!
Jagger Bolton, Mandy’s son, started with scouting at age seven with Troop 58 in Slatington, nine years later, he earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Jagger’s Eagle Scout project was to rejuvenate the fish pond outside of the Springside Fish Hatchery in Slatington.
PA State Representative Zachary Mako was on hand to recognize Jagger’s achievement with a special commendation from the State of Pennsylvania. Family and friends were all on hand to congratulate Jagger at his Eagle Scout ceremony.

The finished project!
Thanks to all who helped contribute
Jagger at work
The renovation project took months to complete. The first step was to remove all of the fish from the hatchery, transferring them to local creeks. After the fish were relocated, he began work on the fish pond itself. The project included repair and painting of the fence, beautification of the landscaping and installing a new bench so local residents could enjoy the view.
A project on this scale was not possible without the help of the community. Jagger acknowledges the generosity of area businesses who donated items or gave discounts for supplies and equipment.
Jagger also wants to thank his friends and family who donated their time and energy. They persevered through a rainy summer to get it all done. From spreading mulch to preparing meals for the volunteers, Jagger’s crew made it all possible.

You can change lives by donating your used eyeglasses – RECYCLE for SIGHT!
We have a donation box in our office!
Moran Eye Associates is working with the local Lions Club to collect eyeglasses to distribute to those in need. Dr. Mark Moran and his wife, Paulette are Lions Club members. They encourage everyone to donate their used specs.
Changing lives, one pair at a time: In almost any home, you can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. Need a little motivation to clean out those drawers? Your donated eyeglasses can change the lives of children and adults.
For many years, the Lions Club “Recycle Your Sight” program has distributed glasses to people in need in low and middle-income communities. Donated glasses can:
Success in school: Help a child read
Work opportunities: Help an adult succeed in his or her job
Quality of life: Help a senior maintain independence
Thanks for your donation, Sherri!
We know that many of our patients no longer need their old prescription glasses. Especially those who have improved their vision through LASIK or cataract surgery with Dr. Moran!
If you have a pair (or more!) of glasses to donate, bring them to our office at 1204 Delaware Avenue in Fountain Hill. We would be happy to accept your donation during our normal office hours, 8-4pm, Monday -Thursday. Prescription glasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses are all needed.
Looking for a great community service project for your office or for student groups? This recycling program is an easy project to coordinate. Contact us for more information and to request a collection box.
