2021 Eye Donation Month

2021 is the 60th Anniversary of the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA) and the creation of Eye Donation Month is one of the biggest milestones of our six decades. Begun in 1983 and held each November, it is an opportunity to put a spotlight on the 12 million people worldwide suffering from blindness that can be restored with a corneal transplant.

The purpose of Eye Donation Month is to:

Raise Awareness about cornea donation and transplantationHonor the gift of sight given by selfless donors and their familiesCelebratecornea transplant recipients living their fullest lives thanks to the generosity of donorsEducate about eye donation and encourage individuals to register as donorsWhat is Cornea Donation?What is an eye bank?

Continuing Theme – A Community of Compassion

This year we continue to celebrate “A Community of Compassion” – the many people working together in various roles who support the EBAA mission to #RestoreSight worldwide. This year, we’re especially focused on the passion element of “compassion” – not only the passion to restore sight, but the passions and stories of donor heroes, and the passions recipients are able to fully explore and pursue thanks to the gift of sight.

Take a look at these three videos telling different stories about the impact of the gift of sight:

Byron’s story: Learn about Byron, as told by his wife. Byron was passionate about science, teaching, and art. As a donor, he allowed two other individuals to fully pursue their passions

Sandie’s story: Sandie is a grateful recipient of bi-lateral corneal transplants. Her gifts permit her to continue her life’s passions – work, travel, singing, and reading
