There were 48,229 corneal transplants performed in the U.S. in 2013. Since 1961, more than 1,000,000 men, women, and children ranging in age from nine days to 100+ years, have had their sight restored.

Ninety-five to 99 percent of all corneal transplant operations successfully restore the corneal recipient’s vision. For more details and FAQs visit Eye Bank Association of America‘s (EBAA) website.
