The Circle of Light Photo Project is a collection of photographs taken by people whose sight was restored through cornea transplants. The project educates the public about the impact eye donation has on the lives of those in our communities and also helps support the eye bank's mission through the sale of the photos.

Cornea transplant recipients show the world the things they can now see by participating in this important project.

Can I submit photos?

All cornea transplant recipients can submit photos year-round. 

What should I take photos of?

That's entirely up to you. We suggest you look around for the things you had trouble seeing or doing before your transplant. Maybe you already have a favorite photo you took after your transplant. If not, we suggest going on a walk through a park or your neighborhood and look for details in the everyday things you see. Close-ups and landscapes all work. We've had everything from traffic, to food, to vacations. Be creative! View past photo submissions.
