The donated eyes are used to restore sight to those afflicted with blindess through corneal transplantation and scleral grafting. Donated eyes may also be used for research when applicable.

Hearing Aid Bank - The Foundation collects used hearing aids. The hearing aids are refurbished and individually fitted to citizens in need.
