Information for Surgeons

Mid South Eye Bank is a part of the patient care team and exists to serve your patients. As the front end of the corneal transplant process, our desire is to provide the physician with the very best quality tissue possible when you need it, where you need it and how you need it. If the surgeon has special needs patients or has special requirements, we will try our very best to meet those needs.

When a surgeon has a case which requires a transplant, the process is as follows:

On the appointed day, eye bank personnel deliver the tissue to the location (hospital, ASC) where the surgery will take place.

The eye bank will provide the physician with certain follow-up evaluations as required by law and required for accreditation, the adverse reaction report. Specifically, the eye bank must document that the transplant was successful and, if not, must investigate the cause for the adverse outcome.

Our waiting list is a patient-based list which means that patients, not physicians are in line for tissue. Our tissue is offered to the next patient on the list.
