Eye Donation Month
Eye Donation Month is an annual event held each November, raising awareness about cornea donation and transplantation. It commemorates the selfless individuals who donated the gift of sight to others, and recipients whose lives have been transformed thanks to this generosity.
New Theme! A Community of Compassion
This year we celebrate “A Community of Compassion” – the many people working together in various roles, driven by collective passion to #restoresight. The intention is to inspire individuals to register as donors, and highlight the mission of EBAA member eye banks to #restoresight worldwide.
Meet Zoe and read about a legacy of kindness made possible by donor Mother, Aolani, and her family.
