The Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration is the world’s first eye bank. Established in New York City in 1944, it is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to restoring sight through eye donations and cornea transplants, as well as providing ocular tissue for research into treatment and cures for other eye diseases.
The Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration helps to cure blindness by providing donor eye tissue for sight-saving cornea transplants, medical education and research.
Meet transplant recipients and donor family members and learn how eye donation has made a difference in their lives.
You can be a part of The Eye-Bank’s community outreach efforts and help inform others about the importance of eye donation.
Your financial contribution will help us provide the gift of sight to hundreds of men, women, and children each year.
