Ocular Donors

NDRI works with eye bank partners to obtain consent and recover ocular tissue from donors for biomedical research. Recovered tissues have a post mortem to preservation interval of 14 to 24 hours and can be delivered to researchers within 36 to 72 hours.  Normal or diseased tissues can be sent to researchers fresh in Optisol or media with antibiotics, frozen or fixed.

Examples of ocular tissues include:

  • Whole globe

  • Posterior pole

  • Cornea

  • Lens
