Become a Donor

Join the Nebraska Donor Registry

  1. Sign up on the Nebraska Donor Registry. Go online to: https://www.donoregistry.org/Register/ne/en#/enroll
  2. You can indicate your wishes when obtaining or renewing your driver’s license. When you state that you want to be a donor at the DMV, your name is automatically placed on the Nebraska Donor Registry.


Whether you consent to be a donor online or at the DMV, we suggest you involve your family and health care providers in this decision. If they are aware of your decision, they will be better prepared to honor your wishes.

Remember, thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of others around the world suffer from corneal blindness each year. By donating your eye tissue after death, you may contribute in a positive and generous way to restore or improve the sight of those people.

Even if you have been diagnosed with cancer or have received chemotherapy, you can still be an eye tissue donor. Even if you wear glasses, have glaucoma, or have cataracts with surgery, you can still be an eye tissue donor. All ages benefit from corneal transplantation. Sight restoration makes a tremendous difference in the quality of life. An eye tissue donation used in transplantation can help two people. An eye tissue donation used in research and teaching helps thousands and can make a difference for generations of people.


Statistics

  • Nationally, an average of 60,000 corneal transplants are performed each year.
  • Corneal transplants are 90 – 95 percent successful.
