Become an Eye Donor
Give the Gift Of Sight
Becoming an eye and organ donor is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. The transplantation process depends on the priceless gift of corneal donation from one person to another. As a donor, you are helping restore sight for someone struggling with vision impairing eye diseases.
Your decision to become a donor can help in other ways. Your gift can help advance research and education on sight disorders, such as glaucoma and eye complications from diabetes, to advance the discovery of the cause and effects of these conditions, leading to new treatments and cures.
Signing up to become a donor only takes a few minutes of your time.
You can sign up by one of the following methods:
Share your wish to donate with family and others!
You can also share your decision on Facebook, and perhaps inspire others to make the same decision. To designate yourself as a donor on Facebook:
- Go to Timeline
- Click on “Life Event”
- Select “Health and Wellness”
- Choose “Organ Donor”
- Click “Save” to update
Your organ donor status will appear both on your Timeline and in your “About” section.
This does not legally identify you as an eye, organ and tissue donor. North and South Carolinians still need to register as a donor on their driver’s license or online.
Make A Financial Contribution
Donating money to Miracles In Sight can make the gift of sight possible. Through your tax-deductible gift, you can help pay for surgical care, fund research, and support eye banking operations here in the U.S. and in underserved parts of the world. You can even choose to make your gift to honor a loved one’s memory or to recognize a special event.
