Working with surgeons in over 30 countries, SightLife restores sight to more than 20 men, women, and children each day. This is accomplished through eye banking, which is the recovery and placement of eye tissue used in cornea transplants. SightLife’s mission is to eliminate cornea blindness, and we are working to achieve that mission by creating partner eye banks in the developing countries, where 90% of the 10 million people suffering from curable cornea blindness live.
SightLife’s primary service regions in the United States are Washington state, Northern Idaho, Montana, California’s San Joaquin Valley, and Kaiser Permanente in Northern California. We meet 100% of the need for transplant tissue in these regions with no waiting list. We also help to fill shortages in other parts of the nation.
