Eye Donation

Corneal transplants are the oldest and most successful tissue transplant procedure. Many diseases can cause the cornea (the eye’s front ‘windowpane’) to become cloudy resulting in poor vision or total blindness.

  • Whole globe donation allows the eye bank to provide the white part of the eye for use in patients who have had their whole eye removed due to injury or disease.
  • The lens and other structures of the eye can be used for Saving Sight research.
