New Mexico Lions Eye Bank
To relieve human suffering by facilitating the donation, retrieval, processing and equitable distribution of corneal tissue for transplantation, research and other medical needs worldwide.
New Mexico Lions Eye Bank (NMLEB) has been providing safe, high-quality corneal tissue to surgeons and their patients since 1962. Serving a population of nearly two million throughout the state, NMLEB helps make people's final gift, the "Gift of Sight" a reality. Lions are recognized worldwide for their service to the blind and visually impaired. NMLEB has been supported since its inception by dedicated Lions Clubs across New Mexico who contribute their time and expertise to NMLEB's sight-restoring mission.
