The Lions Medical Eye Bank and Research Center of Eastern Virginia ensures that transplantable eye tissue meets or exceeds donor eligibility criteria according to U. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA) medical standards.
Our quality program is intimately tied with the clinical services program to ensure that current issues and events always stay ahead of the curve regarding tissue safety and tissue quality.
Our Medical Director, Bruce Bodner, M.D., was involved in founding the eye bank and has since maintained an active role in providing pragmatic medical oversight to quality initiatives.
