Atlanta, GA – Georgia Eye Bank is excited to announce a new mission statement, approved by the Board of  Trustees:

IMPROVING VISION AND LIVES through transplantation of ocular  tissue and cells, innovation, research, education, and collaboration  to advance treatments and patient outcomes. 

This new and more modern mission statement reflects Georgia Eye Bank’s continued commitment to  improving the vision and lives of people through various means, including research, education, and  collaboration.

“Our previous mission statement served us well for many years. However, eye banking has evolved  significantly, and our new mission statement will help others better understand who we are and what we do,” said Eric Meinecke, President & CEO.

In addition to continuing to provide safe, high-quality donor ocular tissue for transplant and research, Georgia Eye Bank is collaborating more and more with academic and research institutions, biotech firms, and the  pharmaceutical industry. Strategic partnerships coupled with an organizational culture that firmly believes in  continuous learning and growth, has made Georgia Eye Bank one of the most respected and trusted eye  banks in the world.

The organization continues to recognize and honor donors and their families, ensuring that others can benefit  from the Gift of Sight. Georgia Eye Bank will be announcing new Vision and Values statements in the coming  months.
