Help us bring a brighter future.

Welcome to Lions Eye Bank of West Central Ohio, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring sight across the nation and around the world.

About Us

You can help the blind to see.

Corneal transplants are the second most common transplant in the US, after blood donation. We need to supply corneas for over 85,000 transplants per year. Your donation will help us to meet these needs, restoring vision to up to two people.


A Story of Sight

Cornea Recipient Roger – Grateful for the generous gift!!

Donor Family,

My name is Roger and I am semi-retired. We have 2 adult sons and I am interested in working with Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer builder.

I suffered from a disease in the cornea of my eyes that blurred my vision. The disease required a cornea implant which was possible from the cornea tissue from your family.

Thanks to your donor gift - my life improved through the gift of vision. Years of suffering with blurry vision kept me from hobbies and interests that are now possible.

I am grateful to the generous donor who made my life so much better.
