Cornea Care Leaders
CorneaGen’s one-of-a-kind Eye Bank Experience Program is a two day program that introduces corneal fellows to the day-to-day operations of an eye bank, following the path of a cornea from the time of donation consent to when the cornea is shipped for transplant.
Each visit includes:
- Face-to-face time with subject matter experts who will talk about their unique role within the eye bank and answer any questions the fellow has.
- Hands-on time within the lab, observing CorneaGen’s highly trained technicians processing DMEK and DSEK grafts
- Time in the lab for the corneal fellow to practice tissue processing with the guidance of CorneaGen’s technicians.

It’s pretty amazing to see where the tissue comes from. When you’re a surgeon, you often forget all the work that goes behind getting what you need to take care of your patients. This is really a singular experience and I think that every fellow should go through it.
