Eye Donation

March 10, 2008 at 9:20 PM 14 comments


I understand the pain blind people go through and I want to help. Unfortunately it seems i cannot donate my eyes as i have keratoconus. It is a progressive condition in which the cornea becomes conical in shape. And I myself might require corneal grafting. Due to this I am feeling very hurt that i cannot help blind people. I don’t expect anyone to reply. I just wanted to let my sorrow out.

However, I feel it is my duty to emphasize the importance of eye donation. Let a person who needs it badly have it after you die. Can’t you do that much? You are not going to use your eyes in your “Afterlife”. Even you know that. So please people, anyone who feels every person has the right to see can donate their eyes.

    Yes. I understand the pain and hardship that blind people go through in their lives. And it is sad that you cannot donate your eyes. But you have done a good thing by posting about it. It will make people think about donating their eyes. πŸ™‚

    Anyways, I will donate my eyes to give sight to a blind person. At least, I’ll have the satisfaction of someone looking at the world through my eyes. πŸ™‚

    Good day Pavan. Great thought! πŸ™‚

    there are more options for keratoconus. Intacs , corneal cross linkage or the combination of the two. Better than just wearing contact lenses.
