Abstract: Vision is a persons most highly valued sense. The eye is the window to the world and it is a sensitive highly specialized sense organ subject to various disorders, many of which lead to impaired vision. The disease of the cornea is one of the major causes of blindness in India for which the vision can be restored by eye donation. Vision is the most important sense because it allows interacting freely with the environment and enjoying the beauty of life. The eye is the window to the world and it is a sensitive, highly specialized sense organ subject to various disorders, many of which lead to impaired vision. Blindness is a lack or loss of ability to see; lack of perception of visual stimuli. The diseases of the cornea are one of the major causes of blindness in India for which the vision can be restored by eye donation. Eye sight is very important for human life. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that for every 5 seconds, someone goes blind. Globally 37 million people are blind and of these nearly 10 lakh blind people are willing for corneal transplantation. In India, there is huge need for the availability of the eye donors to reduce the burden of the corneal blindness. Voluntary eye donation usually depends on the knowledge and awareness levels in the community. Medical students are the future doctors practicing in the various community levels and they can be important sources of distributing the awareness of the eye donation.
