Your story can help us tell our story.

  • Do you have a memory you would like to share?
  • Do you have a story about a family member who was an eye or cornea donor?
  • Can you describe your experience of renewed eyesight following your cornea transplant?
  • Would you share what influenced your decision to register to be a donor?
  • Will you tell us about your loved one’s donation for research and education purposes?

Whatever your personal story is, we would like to hear it. Sharing stories about how eye donation restores sight and renews life helps us reach and serve as many people as possible.
