Can you imagine feeling as though you are looking at life through a foggy windshield? More than 40,000 Americans actually do each year, they suffer from corneal blindness. The good news is a gift of sight restoration is possible through the medical miracle of corneal transplantation. But sadly, there is not enough for all those in need and there is no substitute for the human cornea.
Old Dominion Eye Foundation (ODEF) provides quality human eye tissue for sight restoration and conservation through the promotion of eye donor awareness and the care of donors, recipients and their families. Serving the Commonwealth of Virginia with offices in Fairfax, Richmond and Roanoke, ODEF is accredited through the Eye Bank Association of America.
Sight restoration offers patients a new chance at healthy, productive, normal lives. You have the power to change someone’s world by being a donor and giving the gift that can be opened 1,000 times a day.
