The Gift of Sight

With deep care and respect for our courageous cornea donor families, SightLife collaborates with numerous partners to ensure the gift of sight in the U.S. is handled with integrity and purpose—to help enable the sight-restoring treatment that people need to stay in school, maintain a livelihood, and build a brighter future for themselves and those they love.

Losing a loved one can be extremely difficult. We offer a range of programs and resources to support you in your bereavement journey.

Our commitment to you will never waver. We’re here to help you access information, make healing connections, and honor your loved one’s legacy of generosity and impact.

The gift of sight comes with loss, and SightLife honors this loss by doing everything in our power to ensure a respectful and compassionate donation process.

You are living proof of the importance of donation. Learn how to turn your gratitude into action by sharing your story or potentially writing a letter to your cornea donor family.

Learn how sight is restored through a procedure called a cornea transplant, which replaces the patient’s impaired cornea with a healthy donor cornea.

For Recovery Partners

The gift of sight is made possible by our hospital, medical examiner/coroner, and funeral home partners working together to ensure a productive, high-quality approach to donation and recovery.

In Partnership to Ensure No One Suffers Needlessly in the Dark

Together, we will eliminate corneal blindness by 2040.
