EBAA member eye banks made possible over 79,000 sight-restoring corneal transplants in 2014. The opportunity to perform more transplants is significant because virtually everyone is a universal donor. The function of corneal tissue is not dependent on blood type, age, strength of eyesight or the color of the eye.
You too can give the gift of sight. Register as an eye, organ and tissue donor through your local Department of Motor Vehicles or your state donor registry using the map below.
