We are leading the worldwide fight against blinding eye disease through our unique model — uniting the world’s largest Eye Bank, our cutting-edge Ocular Research Center, and our Foundation together to create the leading institution for ocular science. We are advocates for the 45 million blind and visually impaired people across the globe, and our mission is to improve their vision and quality of life, and ultimately end blindness.
