Eye Donation
Anyone can pledge eyes
Eyes may be donated only after death.
Eyes may be removed only by a trained doctor.
Nearest eye bank should be informed immediately.
Eyes must be removed within 4-6 hours after death.
Eye removal does not leads to any disfigurement in eye.
One pair of eyes gives vision to TWO corneal blind people.
Eye removal process is simple and takes only 10 to 15 minutes.
The eyes can be pledged to any eye bank preferably the nearest one.
The identities of both the donor and the recipient remain confidential.
A small quantity of blood will be drawn to rule out communicable diseases.
The eye bank team may remove eyes at home of the deceased or at a hospital.
Only the transparent section of the eyes called cornea is taken out and not the full eye ball.
Eyes donated to The Eye-Bank that are not medically suitable for transplant may be used for medical research and education.
