Donor eyes help glaucoma patients. The Lions Eye Bank has added to the many ways in which donated eyes can help improve the lives of others. We are now preparing a new type of graft that promotes healing after glaucoma filtering surgeries. These grafts provide a medically preferable approach to “patching” the area from which excess fluid is surgically drained.

Open Your Eyes...to all the benefits of becoming an Eye Donor

      Did you know that it’s easy to become an eye donor and that just about anyone can donate his or her eyes? Regardless of your age or whether or not you wear glasses or contact lenses, your eyes can make an important difference to an individual suffering from an eye disease or eye injury. By becoming an eye donor, you give someone the chance to see the world more clearly.

     Help the Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank achieve our vision by opening your eyes to all the benefits of eye donation. Learn more about becoming an eye donor.

    The Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring, improving and preserving vision by connecting eye donors and transplant recipients, educating physicians, and enhancing eye research through quality eye banking services.

    Since 1973, the Eye Bank has facilitated the successful collection and transplantation of over 10,000 corneas. Servicing hospitals and patients across 45 Ohio counties, Eye Bank staff and volunteers helped provide the gift of sight for over 630 patients last year.
