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.

Eye Research and Medical Education.

Advancement of eye care

Eye care, or ophthalmology, is a growing field in which physicians and researchers are actively discovering new approaches and techniques for treating and preventing eye diseases. Do you have a family member or friend with glaucoma, macular degeneration, or retinitis caused by diabetes? The treatment, care, and prevention of all of these depends on eye donors to advance knowledge of how the eye functions, and what causes impaired vision. In addition to corneas for transplantation, the mission of the Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank includes providing donor eyes for eye research and medical education. The Eye Bank has for decades provided donor eyes - and with them many opportunities for researchers and physicians in training, including at OSU and Harvard.
