Eye Banks

An eye bank obtains, medically evaluates, and distributes eyes donated by individuals for use in corneal transplantation, research, and education. Eye banks are non-profit organizations. Eye banks manage eye donor programs for the purpose of promoting eye donation; retrieving, processing, and preserving donor eye tissues; and evaluating and distributing donor eye tissues for sight-restoring transplantation. Eye banks are also active members of the donation community committed to educating the public about the need for donations and the importance of donor registration. As Donate Life Texas partner organizations, these dedicated groups often collaborate on community outreach programs.
