Our dedication to quality and excellence, along with our commitment to exceptional customer service, has made us a leader in the eye banking industry.
Every donor is thoroughly evaluated for contraindications through medical records review, medical/social history interview, and review of post-mortem examination results.
Highly trained and skilled technicians perform thorough ocular assessments and physical examinations prior to recovering ocular tissue using aseptic technique.
Infectious Disease Testing
Donors are tested for infectious diseases using a qualified blood sample. Testing includes HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and Syphilis.
Recovered tissue is carefully examined using slit-lamp, specular microscopy and OCT imaging.
Donor tissue is meticulously processed by our skilled technicians based on surgeon specifications and preferences in our state-of-the-art processing rooms.
Our laboratory services staff offer tissue to transplant physicians for scheduled and emergency procedures. Georgia Eye Bank has a just, equitable and fair system of tissue distribution. Access to tissue is provided without regard to recipient race, color, religion/creed, national origin or ancestry, sex, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, genetic information or citizenship.
Georgia Eye Bank is committed to the principles of community-based eye banking. Our top priority is eliminating corneal blindness and disease within our service area. When the surgical needs in our service area are met, we provide tissue to other eye banks and also distribute tissues internationally.
