Eyes2Eyes is a registered Non-Profit Organisation passionate about changing the lives of people with avoidable blindness from cornea disease. Through the supply of new diagnostic technology and highly customised scleral lenses to indigent patients with cornea disease in South Africa, we are giving people the gift of sight and reducing the devastating impact of blindness.
We are also raising awareness about the need for the procurement of cornea tissue within our own borders. At the moment, cornea tissue is imported at great expense. Please consider registering as an organ and tissue donor in South Africa, and if you do, please have the conversation with your family, who ultimately makes the decision on your demise.
If you'd like to chat with us about how corneas are procured, please don't hesitate. The procedure is gentle and does not disfigure the donor.
