Restoring Sight, Renewing Lives

About Lions VisionGift.

Lions VisionGift building

The gift of sight is something that many people don't fully appreciate until they're faced with the impacts of their own failing sight, or that of their loved ones. Fortunately, sightlessness due to cornea disease or dysfunction is something which can be repaired, and that's where Lions VisionGift comes in.

Through the generosity of brave donors and their families, our organization is able to provide safe and effective cornea grafts for sight restoring surgeries throughout the state and across the nation. Since our inception in 1975, more than 25,000 individuals have received sight-restoring transplants. We are also very proud of our tradition as innovators in our industry as well as our contributions to valuable global research initiatives.

In response to these needs, Lions VisionGift worked with a company that uses 3D printing technology to make medical devices. Read on to learn more about this exciting contribution.
