No more waste. Recycle your used contact lenses and blister packs.
Are you concerned about the waste your disposable contact lens are creating? You can now recycle your blister packs, top foil and contact lenses at Acuity Vision Optometry Boutique. Bausch + Lomb and Terracycle have partnered to create a recycling program to help process the waste of contact lenses.
How it works
Bring us your used contact lenses and blister packs instead of throwing them into landfill. The cardboard boxes they come in can be recycled through your regular municipal recycling. We'll send in the materials once we've filled our collection box. Once received, the contact lenses and blister packs are separated by composition and cleaned. The metal layers of the blister packs are recycled separately, while the contact lenses and plastic blister pack components are melted into plastic that can be remolded to make recycled products.
Mother Earth will thank you. Start collecting your contact lens waste today, and bring them into your next appointment. Or stop by anytime during opening hours to drop them off!
