Become an Eye Donor

We need your help.

  • One person becomes blind every 5 seconds.
  • One child becomes blind every minute.
  • 10 million people worldwide could have their vision restored through corneal transplants.

Your help is crucial and requires a small investment on your part in time and money. Donating your corneas costs you or your family nothing — only a generous end-of-life decision to help the blind. However, your financial contribution today can have an immediate impact in supporting the work of continuing sight restoration in Alabama and other places across the nation and world that need your help. Please help today!
