ABOUT THE EYE BALL

The Eye Ball is the signature event of the Lions Eye Institute for Transplant and Research Foundation,

benefiting the Gratis Ocular Tissue Program, which provides sight-saving surgery to individuals who cannot afford it.

The 2019 Eye Ball: See and Be Seen will include a reception, seated dinner, live auction, and a fashion presentation

featuring visually impaired models.

Guests at the Eye Ball will be divided into four houses of fashion to compete for the title of Ultimate Fashion House. Guests will earn points for their fashion house by engaging in the event by posting on social media, having their photos taken, making a gift, etc.

GRATIS OCULAR TISSUE PROGRAM

At the 2018 Eye Ball, we raised $97,000 for the Gratis Ocular Tissue Program. This program provides ocular tissue to people who cannot afford sight-saving surgery.

Last August, Dr. Herbert Knauf traveled to Honduras to restore sight to people suffering from corneal blindness. Through our gratis program, we were able to supply him with ocular tissue for his transplant surgeries at absolutely no charge to the patients.

We hope you were able to join us at the 2018 Eye Ball: An Optical Illusion last September! The evening was filled with beautiful attire, delicious food, and mind-bending optical illusions brought to us by legally blind street magician, Justin Sight.

If you missed this exciting evening, check out Amy Scherzer’s review in the Tampa Bay Times.
