Transplant Recipients

Cornea transplant recipients have a wonderful story to tell. Not only have they been given a second chance for sight, but they are part of a miraculous process that began with the generosity of someone they never even met.

The cornea is the most frequently transplanted part of the human body, and more than 90 percent of cornea transplants performed in the U.S. are successful.

Cornea transplant recipients’ lives are transformed when a stranger’s generosity allows them to see again — some for the very first time. Our recipients find many ways to express their gratitude for the gift they have received. If you know someone whose life has been touched by eye donation, we hope you will support our mission to preserve and restore sight through transplantation, education research and partnership.
