Eye Banking

In the fight against blindness and visual impairment, New Mexico Donor Services works with New Mexico Lion’s Eye Bank to recover, evaluate, processes and distribute donor eye tissue for sight-saving cornea transplants, reconstructive eye surgeries, and research into cures for other eye diseases.  Those diseases include: cataracts, glaucoma and diseases of the retina.

Annually, over 500 people have their sight restored through tissue we provide to our healthcare partners.
