Eye Donation Month

Eye Donation Month – Coming November 2018

(Formerly National Eye Donor Month)

    Check back soon for new graphics and other resources

      Since it was proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, EBAA has used the month as an opportunity to educate the public about the importance of registering to be a donor, about cornea donation and transplantation, and to acknowledge the important work of our member eye banks.

      Eye Donation Month 2018

      The Eye Donation Month 2018 observance will focus on all individuals who make the gift of sight possible.  Member eye bank personnel and staff, funeral directors, medical examiners/coroners, hospital administrators, cornea donor families and cornea recipients are the enduring champions for the millions of people around the world whose lives were transformed through cornea donation and transplantation and a wealth of educational resources and information.

      In the coming months, please watch for new branding and graphics for this year’s commemoration. We will be providing new materials and resources that will be accessible online once they are available.

      If you have any questions, concerns, or comments regarding Eye Donation Month, please contact Yolanda Raine, Communications Manager.
