Have extra contact lenses you no longer use? Don’t throw them away, bring them in for donation. These are donated to a non-profit organization to help reduce landfill waste and to help other individuals.

Because caring for the environment is important to us, we now have a recycling program where you can bring your used or unused contacts in to the office to be donated to the Bausch + Lomb ONE by ONE Recycling Program.
Over 25,000 pounds of lenses have been recycled since the commencement of this program. Click here for more information about the program or to print out your own mailing label.
