Eye donation is a gift that can enhance the quality of life of those who suffer from corneal blindness.
Each week almost 40 cornea recipients receive the gift of sight thanks to caring donors, talented surgeons and The Alabama Eye Bank.
The Alabama Eye Bank works with local funeral homes to meet the donation wishes of the deceased and their families. Making the decision to donate has given comfort to many families by knowing that their loved one was able to help restore sight to someone suffering in darkness. The Alabama Eye Bank will work with your funeral home to streamline the donation process and provide donor families the highest level of compassion and care.
