Donor and Recipient Stories

Cornea donors and recipients have tremendous stories to tell. Recipients often write to tell us how their lives have been transformed by the gift of sight; the ability to see their families and friends, resume normal activities and more fully engage in the world around them.

Similarly, family members of cornea donors wish to remember their loved ones, whose generosity after death often mirrored their perspectives on life.

We have gathered just a few of the thousands of stories that cornea donation and transplantation make possible every year.
