Mission Statement

The EBAA champions the restoration of sight through core services to its members which advance donation, transplantation and research in their communities and throughout the world.

Description

The Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA), established in 1961, is the nation’s oldest transplant association. The EBAA has led the transplantation field with the establishment of medical standards for the distribution of eyes, accreditation of eye banking facilities and training and certification programs for eye banking personnel. These standards have been used as models for other transplantation organizations. EBAA member eye banks operate in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. These eye banks facilitated more than 60,000 sight-restoring corneal transplants in 2011.
