EYE Bank (Collaborated With L V Prasad)
Eye banks are the institutions responsible for collecting and processing donor corneas, and for distributing them to trained corneal graft surgeons. Eye banks are regulated and part of the local health system, they may be attached to a hospital or housed in a separate building.
Cornea harvesting is the surgical removal from a deceased person of either the whole eye (enucleation) or the cornea (in situ corneal excision). This can be done by appropriately trained eye care personnel (eye bank technicians, ophthalmology residents, ophthalmologists, or general practitioners) in a variety of settings, including hospitals, homes, and funeral grounds.
