Why Pass on?
Simply speaking, on death, you won't be needing eyes after they are gone, so if they can be of use to someone else, then why not help them out. If some good can come out of our family's tragedy, then that will perhaps help to reduce grief.
One thing is assured: the recipients will have a smile when their sight is restored and their boundless gratitude to the generous donors who made it possible. There blessings are going to be with you and your family for life and after.
Background to help you understand my motivation
We who can see will hardly be able to imagine how difficult it is not to see. My Grandfather suddenly lost his eyesight in his late sixties. I have always seen him that way, but he could never see me.
He would move around the house very comfortably, but only till things were kept in identical positions. If we would make any change in the house like moving a chair etc...his world would change and make it very difficult for him to navigate without stumbling on anything.
The man that he was, he never complained, I believe he made truce with his situation and I have always seen him live his life with grace and happiness. But I could always hear his unspoken wish to be able to see his grandchildren at least once.
This blog urges everyone to donate their eyes. There are millions of people who could get a chance to see if we pass-on the lamp of our eyes to them.
