The Western Texas Lions Eye Bank Alliance received a generous donation from the Odessa Westside Lions Club. WTLEBA is a nonprofit organization which provides corneas to surgeons for transplant for those in need of restored sight. The Lions Eye Bank, office in San Angelo, provides services to the West Texas area and beyond. It facilitates the recovery, evaluation and processing of donor eye tissue for transplantation following the stringent medical standards of the FDA, Eye Bank Association of America and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. During the clubs March meeting Eye Bank President Lion Bill Lipham gave an overview and update of WTLEBA and presented the club a plaque for their contribution. Pictured are, from left, front row: Club President Jerry Van Houtan, Secretary Mary Bates and Lion Diane Furlow. Back row: Lion Leroy Ross, Lipham and District Zone Chair Lion Joan Soehnlein.
