Cornea, News

Kailee joined the Minnesota Eye Consultants surgical family at the far-too-young age of 6 years old. A patient of Dr. Elizabeth Davis’, she underwent a Corneal Transplant following an incident with an artificial Christmas tree that resulted in a serious eye injury.

Today, Kailee is happy to report that she’s celebrating 9 years of restored vision! It’s so touching to hear updates like this from our patients, and although we’re truly honored to be part of Kailee’s story, it’s important to remember the unnamed hero here – her cornea donor. A selfless individual agreed to donate his or her organs, ultimately resulting in renewed vision for this amazing young woman. To all the organ donors out there, both current and past, please accept our whole-hearted thank you for giving someone this life-changing gift of hope.
