The New Mexico Lions Eye Bank is a member of KeraLink International, a non-profit network of eye and tissue banks. KeraLink helps us ensure that all suitable tissue makes its way to a transplant recipient by distributing tissue that is not needed in our community to other areas of the U.S. and around the world. They also offer administrative services that allow NMLEB staff to focus on our goals of promoting donation and recovering tissue. Learn more about KeraLink International.
