Thank You
In 2007, Tidewater donors restored sight to 678 individuals all over the world. These priceless gifts, given at a time of the donor families’ tremendous loss, demonstrate the very core of the human spirit – kindness to fellow man. Thank you!

On the Grow!
In late 2008, Tidewater’s own eye bank opened in a new location within Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. This state-of-the-art facility allows Tidewater donors to help more people in more ways and in more locations than ever before.

New Surgical Techniques
For nearly 100 years, corneal transplantation was performed in roughly the same manner. The last few years have been marked by great innovation in the ways that cornea transplants occur. LMEB is changing too and will soon be offering more services to help surgeons offer more ways of treating their patients.
