Eye Center of Texas Blog

March is National Eye Donor Month

There’s a critical shortage of organs, tissues and eyes available for donation. There are more than 113,000 patients in the United States awaiting transplantation—more than 11,000 are Texans.  Every 10 minutes, a new name is added to the national transplant waiting list.

Organ, eye and tissue transplants offer patients a new chance at healthy, productive and normal lives, and return them to their families, friends and communities. The Donate Life Texas Registry is a database of individuals who have officially provided authorization to donate organs, tissues or eyes upon their deaths.  You may register as a donor at www.donatelifetexas.org, or at your local Department of Public Safety (DPS) office when you apply for or renew your driver’s license or identification card or  through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) when you renew your vehicle’s registration.

You have the power to donate life…be an organ, eye and tissue donor!
