Lions District 2-E2 Organ and Eye Bank
Congratulations! You have reached the Lions District 2-E2 Organ and Eye Bank Web Site!
LOEB President, Lion Joe Crews, conducts a training class on vision screening for area Lions Clubs. The key to a successful vision screening is the local Lions Club being well trained. On this date, 10 Lions were trained. Six were from the new FM407 Area Club.

What we do
The Organ & Eye Bank has many and various functions to help others:
We conduct Annual White Cane activities to raise funds for the prevention of blindness and loss of vision. White Cane funds are critical to the ongoing success of the Organ and Eye Bank.
Established a Vision Assistance Fund to provide financial assistance to those who need eye surgeries, cornea transplants, and other vision related assistance and who cannot otherwise afford the proper care.
We maintain ongoing relationship with UT Southwestern Transplant Services for the advancement of soft tissue transplants. We work to establish new vision clinics throughout District 2-E2.
We provide a Mobile Vision Clinic to the district, which can give basic eye examinations to areas not serviced by optical businesses, or where there is an economic challenge. We utilize a Mobile Vision Clinic for educational purposes throughout the district.
We constructed a memorial Rose Garden in the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens to honor donor and recipient families of transplant services.
We award scholarships to high school students who are winners of the Diabetic Essay Contest, which draws attention to the fact that diabetes can lead to blindness.
