November is Eye Donation Month

During Eye Donation Month in November, the Iowa Lions Eye Bank celebrates the individuals who have given and received the gift of sight, the physicians that change the lives through sight-restoration surgeries, and the researchers that spend countless hours working to find new innovations to help people see the world.

In 2017, 1,197 Iowans donated their eyes, and 260 corneal transplants were performed at UI Hospitals & Clinics.

You have the power to give someone this gift by registering as an eye, organ, and tissue donor.
