2018 Eye Ball: Celebrating 45 Years

We invite you to join us at the 12th annual Lions Eye Ball on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at the Tampa Airport Marriott Hotel.

This year’s Lions Eye Ball celebrates the Lions Eye Institute’s 45 years of service in the community and our commitment to set new standards for ocular endeavors that will improve visual outcomes and quality of life for those who are blind or visually impaired.

We hope you will join us to be a part of a team that gives the gift of sight by providing ocular tissue to individuals who cannot afford sight-saving surgery. Your generosity will ensure that we accomplish this mission and continue to fulfill Helen Keller’s challenge to be “Knights of the blind in this crusade against darkness.”
