A corneal transplant is a physical and emotional transformation.
After their procedure, many tissue recipients see the world in vivid detail for the first time in years — or for the first time ever. The profound gratitude felt by recipients is matched only by their appreciation for the world around them.
Some people afflicted by corneal blindness lose their sight due to traumatic injury, some gradually lose their ability to see due to various diseases, and others may be corneally blind from birth.
Regardless of the cause of their blindness, these individuals are unable to see their family, their friends, their world. They may feel like their story is incomplete — until a corneal transplant gives them the opportunity to rewrite it.
Corneal transplants can enrich the lives of people of all ages, helping them reconnect with loved ones, visualize the vivid details of the world, and rediscover their passions. Are you a registered donor?
