Eversight Connecticut, formerly the Connecticut Eye Bank, began as a project of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Rebekah’s, a national fraternal organization founded to give aid to those in need. The initial grant was received from John Hopkins University in 1961, and by 1962 the eye bank was incorporated and open for business. Through the continued efforts of the Odd Fellows and local Lions Clubs, Eversight Connecticut not only has helped restore sight for over 35,000 people, but has also expanded its role in the community by funding local researchers and by providing pediatric vision screening in area schools.
Eversight Connecticut was one of the first eye banks to receive accreditation from the Eye Bank Association of America.
