Eye donation?What actually is donated?

  1. May 1, 2015 #1
    My teacher said eye donation is actually cornea donation.So,it doesn't mean if the donor had green eyes ,the recipient would get green eye after donation.Because iris is not donated which is responsible for color of eyes.

    From our childhood we have always been taught, "Netra Daan Mahadaan". Our nation currently is having the second largest population in terms of corneal blind people. Everyone wants to donate his or her eyes but some misconceptions and myths still hold them back from doing so. Donating our eyes light the world of 2 blind people. Let us make an effort to bring the change.
