The Lions Eye Bank of Texas is committed to advancing sight restoration by recovering and providing quality donor eye tissue for corneal transplantation and research.

Last year, over 1,400 people benefitted from improved sight from tissue provided by the Lions Eye Bank of Texas at Baylor College of Medicine.

By having fundraising events such as the annual golf tournament, the Lions Eye Bank of Texas is able to continue its educational and community outreach programs along with providing corneas at no charge to indigent patients in need of transplant.
