One of the greatest gifts you can give is the gift of life through eye and organ donation.

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:

Go to (in North Carolina), (in South Carolina) or (in Texas) and sign up to be a donor

Sign up at the Department of Motor Vehicles when renewing your license

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:

  1. Go to Timeline
  2. Click on “Life Event”
  3. Select “Health and Wellness”
  4. Choose “Organ Donor”
  5. 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.

  • David had just graduated from high school. He was 18 years old and very loving. He was a true trickster, always playing jokes on people (especially me). We love him and we miss him, but we are glad that he could give someone else the ability to see.

  • I know she would be very pleased and proud to know that her eyes are now helping someone else to see the beauty in the world as she did. That was the kind of person she was. She will be missed by all who knew her, most of all by me.

    VAN B.

  • When I was diagnosed with a progressive eye disease my only hope was corneal transplant surgery. I couldn’t believe that someone I didn’t even know would care enough to give their loved one’s corneas to me. Because of the gift of sight, I was able to touch the lives of others as an EMS technician.
