Some Real “Miracles In Sight,” From Our Partners At Operation Sight

Eye Donation Month – Lasting Legacy

miracles in sightWe want our families to know just how much we care.

Last year proved to be a very successful year for providing tissue for corneal transplantation. The gift of sight. Sometimes we forget who made this possible, where did the corneal tissue actually come from?
