What happens to your old contacts and the blister packs they come in? They can be recycled! Don’t be part of the problem, be part of the solution. Bring your used contact lenses and their blister packs to Bear Creek Eye Care Optometry and we will recycle them for you thru TerraCycle’s One by One Recycling Program. You cannot recycle them thru your household collection recycling, only thru the special arrangement we have made thru TerraCycle. The contacts and the plastic blister packs will be made into training modules for the Guide Dog Foundation. Also, TerraCycle donates $10 to Optometry Giving Sight, the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision by providing eye exams and glasses to those in need, for every 10 pounds of contact lens waste collected from participating ONE by ONE recycling centers.

Our office will be closed on Independence Day, July 4th. If you experience an eye emergency during that time, call the office at 951-609-9099 and the call will be forwarded to Dr. Wilson.
For the first time, used Contact Lens blister packs, top foil and contact lenses are recyclable in our office through a collaboration with TerraCycle. Every year, countless Bausch + Lomb contact lenses and pieces of plastic packaging end up in dumpsters and landfills across America.
Bear Creek Eye Care is working with TerraCycle® and Bausch+Lomb to put an end to this enormous loss of resources. The ONE by ONE Recycling Program allows us to recycle these items and prevent them from ending up in landfills.
And not only are you helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us will earn a donation to Optometry Giving Sight, the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
Simply drop off your blister packs, top foil and contact lenses in our office and we will take care of the recycling. These items cannot be put in your home recycling bins. However, the outer cardboard boxes can be recycled with other cardboard.

It’s that time of year again! Vision Expo West is this week! Dr. Wilson and some of his staff will be out of town attending an educational conference from Wednesday 9/14 – Sunday 9/18. Our office will be OPEN during this time to place orders and schedule appointments. If you have a pair of glasses waiting to be picked up we still have appointment times available through Tuesday 9/13.
This 9 month old baby received his first pair of glasses today. Imagine how wonderous it is for him to see everything clearly for the first time. Dr. Wilson recommends that all children have their eyes examined before their first birthday so that any visual problems can be found and treated before there are permanent consequences.
Our office will be closed on Labor Day September 7th.
Our Office will also be closed on the following dates for educational meetings:
Wednesday September 16th
