Bridgette Breault’s Story

Cornea Transplant Puts Bridgette’s Life Back on Track.
In May of 2008 Bridgette Breault almost lost sight in one of her eyes. A glass bottle exploded in a freak accident and turned shards of glass into missiles that flew into her eye. 32-year-old Bridgette was rushed to University of Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.

Karin Williamson
Bilateral Cornea Recipient

Karin Williamson received two corneal transplants to
restore her vision loss due to Fuchs’ dystrophy.
She is grateful to her doctor, to the Florida Lions Eye Bank and
to the individuals who donated their tissue to help restore her sight.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Craig Herschoff
Bilateral Cornea Recipient

After corneal transplants in both eyes, Craig, who loves sailing, is thankful to his donors and to the Florida Lions Eye Bank. “Almost losing my vision helps me to appreciate just how beautiful being on the water can be.”
