Southern Eye Bank provides organ donor information for Coroner staff. Our partners at coroner’s offices help us to assess potential donors and allow Southern Eye Bank to offer donor families the opportunity for donation. Coroner’s offices across the State of Louisiana work tirelessly with families experiencing a devastating loss. Many families find comfort knowing that their loved one was able to provide the gift of sight.
