The cornea is a transparent layer that is on the front of the eye. The cornea can be likened to the glass surface of a watch, it is a lens that is in front of the eye because it is transparent, it lets light rays into the interior of the eye, which is why it is very important that the cornea is transparent and has no alterations.
There are many diseases that can cause the cornea to be no longer transparent, thus requiring a corneal transplant to restore vision.
The IVDM proudly features the only eye bank in the region, so we support and we invite you to join the on going campaign donation.
Having an eye bank allows IVDM to use voluntary donations from deceased patients, so that families, of those who unfortunately have this condition and need the surgery, can better the quality of their life.
