The sciences of eye banking and corneal transplantation have made tremendous advances over the past several decades. Changes in preservation methods, surgical techniques and serological testing have necessitated frequent review and reeducation. Throughout these changes, standardization of terminology and techniques has been difficult. This manual will help those involved with eye banking and corneal transplantation understand and utilize a standardized nomenclature for describing changes in preserved ocular tissue. The manual also provides information on instruments and techniques used in eye banking.
