Corneal transplantation offers hope for some people to see again.
The cornea is the clear outer ‘window’ of the front of the eye. If it becomes diseased or damaged, the person’s vision deteriorates, often as far as complete blindness. There are no artificial equivalents to replace a damaged or diseased cornea. Donated corneas have made it possible for many blind or partially blind people to regain or improve their sight.
The Lions Corneal Donation Service is responsible for the recovery of corneas in the state of Victoria. The DTBV facilitates the corneal donation process by obtaining consent from families of multi-tissue donors on behalf of the Lions Eye Donation Service.
