Thanks to the constant advancement of medical technology, even tried-and true procedures like corneal transplantation are continuously improved, making the dream of restored vision a lasting reality for tens of thousands of people in the United States each year. But the talented medical professionals who perform this life-altering procedure actually are some of the last players in the process. Before they can work their miracles, a generous and compassionate family must turn their loss into another's priceless gift.
Families of donors and the recipients of donated tissue - even without ever meeting - form a unique and lasting bond and often feel moved to share that with world. The Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley is honored to be your source for information on the medical technology that is changing lives, the inspiring stories of the people who make such change possible and the expressions of thanks from grateful benefactors.
