Eye Donation is one of the most valuable gifts you could provide to help persons in need, as well as help research combat many devastating eye diseases.
Consider signing an organ donor card. The most important thing to remember is that you should inform your family (next of kin) of your intended organ donations.
Share basic information about your health conditions and the name of your eye doctor with your immediately family members, because they will need this information to provide to the hospital, funeral home and eye bank coordinating your eye donation process.
The Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) has an “Eye Bank” unit which coordinates donations and Volunteers do great service to the general public in helping out at the time of usually urgent need.
