Eyes that Inspire

Serving the Rocky Mountain Region (and beyond)

By Derek Simon - November 9, 2023

As we embrace Eye Donation Month, we’re thrilled to play a part in giving the incredible gift of sight to those in need.  Our mission is simple yet powerful – fulfilling the wishes of eye donors and their families. Paving the way for others to overcome blindness through transplantation and cutting-edge research. 

In the heart of Colorado and Wyoming, our commitment to this mission has been unwavering.  Nearly 2,500 eye tissue donors annually make it possible for thousands to experience the miracle of sight-restorative transplants.  And it’s not just about the numbers; it’s about the stories, the lives touched, and the hope restored. 

At the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank, we go the extra mile for the eye surgeons who request tissue from us - from Colorado, Wyoming, and beyond.  Included in our processing fees is standard shipping, reflecting our dedication to seamless processes and ensuring surgeon satisfaction.  Our passionate staff is driven by a commitment to quality and innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries to enhance the impact of our work. 

A heartfelt thank you extends to everyone involved in this intricate system – the donors, the families, the surgeons, and all those who contribute to this profound cause.  Since our founding in 1982, we’ve been unwavering in our pursuit of restoring sight, and as we look ahead, we’re excited about continuing to provide the gift of sight for many more decades to come. 

Cheers to vision, to generosity, and to the countless stories renewed by sight that shape our journey.
