INDIANA LIONS EYE AND TISSUE TRANSPLANT BANK

The Indiana Lions Eye Bank (ILEB), is a non-profit corporation committed to the restoration of sight and the relief of human suffering.  Since 1959, their organization has restored vision to over 30,000 individuals who have suffered from corneal blindness as a result of injury or disease.  As the primary supplier of cornea tissue in Indiana, the ILEB provides over 1900 corneas for transplant annually.  Since their inception, they have been committed to serving the needs of Indiana residents, not only by supplying readily available transplantable tissue to improve their lives, but also by furnishing tissue for the research and education that may one day eliminate an eye disease or improve upon an existing surgical procedure.
