Viability of donor corneas
- 0Oct 22, '03 by stevieraeDoes anybody know how long a donor cornea--before opening, of course--remains viable? In other words, if a corneal transplant is scheduled and has to be postponed for whatever reason, what is the window that the aptient can be brought back and the same cornea be used? And where/how is it appropriately stored if the eye bank is not in the same facility? Thanks.
