Understanding Cornea Donation

Restoring sight to patients suffering from corneal blindness is only made possible through cornea donation. The process of cornea donation starts with an individual’s decision to be an eye, tissue, and organ donor, or a family’s consent to donation, and then results in a cornea transplant for a patient suffering from corneal blindness. A cornea transplant is a procedure that involves replacing a diseased or scarred cornea with a cornea recovered from a person who has passed away. The eye bank facilitates this important process.
