Summary: If you have an old pair of eyeglasses, you can easily repurpose them for something else. Here are some common ways on how you can accomplish this.
If you have an old pair of eyeglasses that have an outdated prescription and are planning to purchase new frames, you’ll be justify with an old pair just sitting around in your cabinet. These physical frames can last a long period of time without needing a replacement. But when it’s time for a change, you’ll want to dispose of them appropriately or repurpose them in the right way.
Use Them as Backup Glasses
If your current eyeglasses are cracked or need to be repaired, you’ll be stuck without them for a good while. Now, depending on your vision, you may be fully dependent on these glasses. In emergency cases such as these, it would be beneficial to have a spare set of emergency frames on the side so you don’t risk injury.
If you already have a pair of emergency glasses or want to take a different route, you can use them for fashion instead. If you have more glasses to choose from, you can match them according to the outfits you have. Many people, including celebrities, have different glasses that they wear with their outfits to add a little flavor to their appearance.
Donate Them to a Local Charity
While your old eyeglasses may not be relevant to you anymore, they can still be used by those that are less fortunate and cannot afford a pair of glasses. It’s worth the trip to a local charity where you can donate them. Not only are you giving people a second chance to use a medical tool that will help them see, but you’re also helping your community.
