Share Your Recipient Story

The story of how you now see the world can both be an inspiration to those in need, but also a way to pay living tribute to those who have given the gift of sight. Did you receive your cornea from VisionGift? If so, we would love to hear and share your story.

Please fill out the fields below and click the ‘submit’ button when done. If you have any questions about the process, feel free to email

    In the space below, please share your story with us. A few items you may want to include are: why you needed a cornea transplant (state the condition or disease that led to you needing one), how your sight was before your transplant, how your sight improved because of your transplant, if there is anything you wish you could tell your donor’s family, any additional information you would like to include about your experience, receiving the gift of sight, or your life after receiving the transplant. A representative from VisionGift may contact you for additional information.
