Eye Bank co-ordination and Research centre is working towards alleviating corneal blindness. it is affiliated to the International Federation of eye and Tissue banks baltimore USA and a member of the Eye Bank association of India. EBCRC has a state of the art laboratory for processing eyeballs. The corneas are processed, evaluated and distributed to the waiting list of corneal blind patients. When one person donates eyes two corneal blind persons get the Gift of Sight.
EBCRC  requires your assistance in getting Doctors to help in enucleation of eyes. We need volunteers to help in the cause of Eye donation. As per the human transplant act only medical practicioners can enulceate eyes from a dead person.(and not trained technicians as is done all over the world.) If General practitioners before issuing the Death Certificate requests the next of kin to donate the eyes of the deceased, I am sure the Eye donation Movement in our city will leap forward and there will not be any corneal blind person in mumbai. people normally listen to their family doctors and would carry out the noble act of Eye Donation.

Let Eye Donation become a social Responsibility
