FLAK prepared tissue may promote the following improved results over traditional corneal surgery:
- Faster return of vision for your patient following surgery. The specialized corneal graft shapes provide a precise match for your recipient’s shape, and may require fewer sutures with less tension resulting in faster healing.
- Eliminates your risk of damaging donor tissue during preparation.
- Reduces post-surgical astigmatism. A precision-fit donor button along with less suture tension allows for a smoother corneal surface.
CorneaGen offers research tissue on special request. For more information please contact email@example.com.
Delivering tissue, on-time, the day of your scheduled surgery (unless requested earlier).
CorneaGen strictly adheres to safe shipping standards for local, national and international corneal tissue orders.
This starts with ensuring that tissue is packed appropriately in a container that maintains cooling for the duration of the shipment. The containers we use are inexpensive, but effective for transporting tissue to and from eye banks, surgeons and surgery centers.
We performed a study to validate our tissue shipping methods. Access the full report published in Cornea: The Journal of Cornea and External Disease, or read the abstract.
We ship tissue to arrive on the day you request delivery. Please order tissue at least seven days in advance of the scheduled surgery. Learn more on the Order Tissue page.
If you need to return tissue, contact the lab that fulfilled your tissue request immediately. We are available 24/7.
The contact information for the lab is located on the box and paperwork received with the tissue. If you cannot locate those materials, please call (877) 682-8502.
We will work with you to arrange return transportation, confirm shipment details and packaging instructions. A courier will pick up the returned tissue package.
The CorneaGen team understands my needs and always provides high quality service. I could get my tissue anywhere but choose to use the best.
