The Lions Eye Bank of the Northeast has been successfully working with hospitals for over 70 years. We are always looking for ways to improve and strengthen this very valuable relationship.

We understand this is a very difficult time for families. We work hard to ensure the final wishes of a patient through eye donation are met. We are here to answer any questions you may have.

Funeral Homes

One of our goals during the recovery process is to not interfere with funeral arrangements. It is very important for the Lions Eye Bank of the Northeast to work closely with our funeral home partners to reach this goal.


We take pride in understanding the needs of our surgeons. It is vital our staff recovers ocular tissue of the highest quality, allowing our surgeons to have a high transplant success rate.
