There are also several charitable ways to give the gift of sight this season.  One way is to donate your glasses to help give the gift of sight to those who are less fortunate. If you no longer need glasses after a vision correction procedure or if you have gotten a new pair, your old glasses can be cleaned up and repaired. They are then given to those with the same or close prescription that are not be able to afford glasses. If you want to learn more about glasses donation, visit www.lionsclub.org or www.onesight.org.

Another way to give the gift of sight is through organ donation. Eye donation involves just the cornea, which is the front protective layer that allows us to see, and not the actual iris. Whenever you sign up to be an organ donor, you can also opt to be a tissue donor as well which has less restrictions than standard organ donation. By becoming a donor, you can leave behind the gift of sight for someone else in need. To learn more about cornea donation, visit www.organdonor.gov.
