We restore sight and prevent blindness through the
healing power of donation, transplantation and research.

Eye donation to research

Gift of Hope Fund

Blinding eye diseases deprive millions of people of their sight each year, and costs associated with vision loss have reached $247B annually in the United States. Your donation to the Gift of Hope Fund supports groundbreaking research to develop new cures and treatments by connecting researchers to donor eye tissue and grant funding.
Give now to help find new cures


One of the only programs of its kind, the Eversight Vision Research Registry & Biorepository will collect, process, preserve and distribute diseased and healthy ocular tissue with an unmatched depth of donor medical, social and ocular data for precision research. Researchers will be able to request well-categorized data and tissue that matches their exact needs.

This program will accelerate ocular research that explores the underlying mechanisms of diseases, leading to improved therapies and new cures and potentially preserving and restoring sight for millions of people around the world suffering from diseases like age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma.
