A New View
Celebrating restored vision and life honored through the gift of eye donation!
Eye Donation Month | November 2023
Each year, Saving Sight joins the eye banking community in observing Eye Donation Month in November. Throughout the month, we concentrate our efforts on raising awareness about cornea donation and transplantation, honoring eye donors’ gifts, celebrating the work of our community partners in facilitating the git, and educating others on how to join the organ and tissue donor registry.
Join us this November in celebrating the new view that the gift of eye donation gives to both recipients and donor families.
Celebrating Champions of Sight!
This November, our team will recognize external partners who exhibit extraordinary dedication in making eye donation possible. Learn more about our Champion of Sight Award program, and how we plan to celebrate the community of individuals who aid in facilitating our sight-saving work.

Living Life With a New View
Jack ‘Hydroplane’ Deloplaine might be best remembered as a Pittsburgh Steeler and a Superbowl champion. But to those who knew him, especially his family, he was much more. His final act of kindness was being a cornea donor.
This is his story, as told by his wife and two sons, brought to you by our partners at the Eye Bank Association of America.
