Organ Donations
Fact and Fiction

Dr. Tom Smith

Many people have misconceptions about donating their eyes when they pass away.  Here is some additional information to help make the decision.

  1. People with cataracts or eyesight problems can still make a donation.
  2. Wealthy individuals do not receive an eye donation first.  It is a federal crime to use race, gender, age or income when determining who receives an organ.  Instead, the distribution system is based on many factors including blood type, length of time on waiting lists, geographical location and severity of illness.
  3. Organs are not taken without approval.  A donor must sign an agreement paper while alive.  In addition, a person's family members must consent to the donation a the time of their loved one's death.  If they do not consent, the donation is canceled regardless of documentation.
  4. The family does not pay when a donation is made.
  5. Donating an organ does not disfigure the body for the funeral.
  6. Donations are always needed.  Every year Americans receive over 19,000 solid organ transplants and 450,000 tissue transplants.

Organ donation is the final gift that anyone can make, please give consideration to it and discuss it with your loved ones so they know your wishes.
