Your support, combined with the efforts of our talented staff who work 365 days a year, committed Trustees and our partner organizations, has helped Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley facilitate more than 45,000 sight-restoring surgeries in your community!

Each transplant journey is unique and meaningful. Sharing your story inspires members of your community to register as eye, organ and tissue donors. The connection between the donation and transplantation communities is powerful. We hope you will join the Eye Bank and help us continue creating miracles of sight for the Delaware Valley and beyond.

Paying it forward

At three years old, Cameron Whittle began experiencing photosensitivity, eye irritation, draining and swelling. At 13, Cameron was diagnosed with keratoconus and, over time, the disease led to vision loss and cornea tissue scarring.

In 2014, after completing his freshman year at Goldey-Beacom, Cameron had a successful transplant surgery and regained vision in his left eye.

In 2018, Cameron was selected by the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA) as the face for National Eye Donation Month, representing cornea transplant recipients from across the country and advocating eye donation!
