Lions Medical Eye Bank and Research Center
of Eastern Virginia

Providing safe, quality eye tissue transplant to the Tidewater region since 1978

The Lions Medical Eye Bank and Research Center of Eastern Virginia is a non-profit transplant agency whose mission is to provide people the opportunity to donate eye tissues; healthcare professionals the means to end blindness; and patients the hope of clearly seeing form, color, and motion. LMEB was created by The Lions Club in 1978 with the goal to help restore sight to thousands of individuals in the Tidewater region of Virginia, across the United States, and throughout the world. Since then, the organization has grown to become a model for other eye banks worldwide.
