Celebrating the Humanity Behind
Corneal Transplantation


At KeraLink International, our mission transcends science. We celebrate the individuals who make up the donor circle — from the selflessness of tissue donors to the gratefulness of transplant recipients. We strive to foster a strong sense of community where compassionate individuals are driven to help one another live their lives to the fullest.
