March is Eye Donor Awareness Month
The month of March is a special time to honor eye donors and their families for giving the gift of sight. Eye donations are crucial for research and education, as well as corneal transplants that can help restore the sight of children and adults.
Lions Eye Banks recover, evaluate, store and distribute human eye tissue for sight-saving procedures. Lions support more than 60 eye banks in nine countries. Recognize Eye Donor Awareness Month by contacting your local eye bank to raise awareness in your community about the importance of eye donations.
