Funeral service professionals are part of the "Circle of Light" — organizations and people donor families encounter on the journey to leaving a lasting legacy of sight restoration.
Our mission is to fulfill the wishes of eye donors and their families to help another overcome blindness. Because we both serve many of the same families, we are committed to establishing a working relationships with funeral service professionals.
Both Colorado and Wyoming statutes require donation to be carried out prior to embalming. To do so, the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank and funeral homes must work together.
Colorado Uniform Anatomical Gift Act
Wyoming Uniform Anatomical Gift Act
RMLEB offers recommendations for embalming eye donors. Laminated posters suitable for the embalming room are also available. Email the Community & Professional Relations department to request laminated posters.
