Imagine you could not see a rainbow, a sunset or a child smile
For those suffering from corneal blindness, this is their reality
The Gift of Sight is the most precious gift imaginable. Becoming an eye donor leaves a legacy of hope for the blind.
Whether giving sight to two separate individuals through corneal transplantation or benefitting tens of thousands of patients for years through research and education, your decision to donate is a humanitarian act of kindness.
The cornea, known as the window to the eye, helps focus light on the retina. If it becomes cloudy due to injury or disease, light cannot reach the retina resulting in blindness. There is no substitute for human corneas or eyes. Your precious gift is the only way to restore sight to those who suffer from corneal blindness and other ocular diseases.
