About Us

The Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank was founded in 1973 on the campus of The Ohio State University, thanks to the support of the Ohio Lions clubs. In December of 2005 we moved to our current location at The Eye Center of Columbus. The Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank, with the help of our healthcare community, has been able to provide over 18,000 corneas for transplantation since its founding in 1973. Our goal of advancing eye care through research and medical education is also accomplished with eye research projects and through residency training for physicians who will become eye care specialists.
