ODEF coordinates events from the time of a donor's death to the transplantation of corneal or scleral tissue. We are a receiving, processing, research and distribution center for donated human eye tissue. ODEF is accredited through the Eye Bank Association of America and strictly adheres to their medical standards and Code of Ethics. In addition to providing corneal tissue for transplant the Eye Foundation supports many research and educational projects. Donated eye tissue is used to find cures for blinding disorders such as Glaucoma, Diabetes related eye disorders, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and more. We also conduct educational programs for the public – working to register the citizens of the Commonwealth to become organ, eye and tissue donors.
