Eye Donor Awareness Month
March is Eye Donor Awareness Month. It’s a special time to honor donors and their families for the tremendous gift of sight they give to improve the lives of corneal recipients. The transplant process depends on the priceless corneal donation from one human to another. Donated eyes are also needed for research and education. Through Lions Clubs Eye Banks, you can help restore the sight of children and adults who need precious eye tissue. Contact your local eye bank today to help raise awareness in your community about the importance of eye donation. Read our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about corneal transplants.
