The Michigan Eye-Bank is a division of Midwest Eye-Banks, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the restoration of sight. They recover, evaluate and distribute human eye tissue for transplantation. As part of their mission, They support preliminary research into the causes and cures of blinding eye conditions. Through public and professional education programs, they encourage people to learn about eye, organ and tissue donation.
Theybelieve education is the key to making an informed decision about donation, and it is also an important way for them to secure funding for the community services they provide. They also provide humanitarian aid to those unable to afford transplantation procedures, both at home and abroad, by waiving their service fees when a charitable need exists.
