Heartland Lions Eye Banks (HLEB) is a program of the Missouri Lions Eye Research Foundation, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation with the mission to preserve and restore sight. The Eye Bank retrieves, processes and distributes the highest quality donor eye tissue to corneal surgeons in our three-state region of Missouri, Kansas and Illinois before it's offered to those nationally and internationally.
In 2011, the Eye Bank, one of the five largest in the nation and the only Lions eye bank in the states of Missouri and Kansas, gave the gift of sight to 2,556 people by providing tissue for corneal transplantation. Regaining sight through transplant is a miracle for those who have suffered from an ocular disease or injury.
