Eye donation is a noble act with an added responsibility. Nothing is more devotional than the valour act of gifting your middles to someone you don’t know. Organ donation is one of the way through which one can stay alive forever in people’s heart. Eye donation makes your eyes immortal.

Scientific discipline has made possible for a human being to donate eyes on his/her will for transplantation for those who really need the light of vision in their world of darkness. Everything in this world is perishable, but science has made this a boon for those who want to see the brightness of earth and for those who want to stay blessed and alive every day. Eye donation is an act of donating one’s eyes after his/her death. Only corneal blinds can be benefitted through this process not other blinds. It is an act of charity, purely for the benefit of the society and is totally voluntary. It is done after death. The eye donation of the deceased can be authorized by the next of kith & kin even if the deceased did not pledge to donate his / her eyes before death.

Almost anyone from the ages of 1 to 75 can be an eye donor, even if you wear glasses or have poor vision. Any donations that are unsuitable for transplant can be used for medical research and education. Eye donation is approved by every major religion. Generally, eye donations do not delay funeral arrangements or prohibit open caskets. Eyes are one of the wonderful gifts one can give and one can get. Aishwarya Rai has already pledged for her eye donation. An unfortunate person will get the gift of eyesight and he/she will be able to see the world through our eyes. Even though we die, our eyes will live on and see the world!
