Ever played the blind man’s buff game, then you must probably know exactly how it feels to be unable to see. Unfortunately, some people are born blind, some lost their eyesight in an accident or for any other reason. Give a thought about how it feels when they regain their sight to see this beautiful world.

We understand—donating the gift of sight is a life-changing decision that touches so many people’s lives, it’s a divine gesture! Let us understand the importance of eye donation and encourage people to donate eyes.

Statistics show that there are 12 million+ blind people in India and out of this, 3 million people are suffering from corneal blindness.
From each pair of donated eyes, two blind people will get vision and light into their life, thus making it more divine.
Donated eyes can be also used to restore vision of people who are suffering from corneal blindness.
The other portions of the eye can be used to develop cures for some of the common eye diseases for research and training purposes.
Preferable to complete the procedure within 6-8 hours after death.Trained staff will come and perform the procedure, which takes only 15-20 minutes. No damage would be caused during the procedure.

An estimated of 30,000 corneas are donated and transplanted each year, but the fact is that there is still a long waiting list at the eye banks. Thus, it’s time you to take the pledge and make someone else’s life beautiful. Don’t think twice and donate your eyes!
