Alabama Eye Bankhttp://www.alabamaeyebank.org/
The Alabama Eye Bank has the unique job of helping victims of corneal blindness find sight. As the only Eye Bank in Alabama, we’re available 24 hours a day to respond when a healthcare facility, such as a hospital, calls to say a donor or their family decided to provide the Gift of Sight. Immediately the Eye Bank dispatches a technician to surgically retrieve the cornea, an amazing tissue that can be used to replace a cornea that has been injured or diseased. Following retrieval, the Eye Bank carefully evaluates the tissue and distributes it to a corneal surgeon who will transplant it as soon as possible.
