The Lions Eye Bank for Long Island is fully accredited by the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA), registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and licensed by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) as a Transplant Anatomic Bank for Eye Tissue and Non-Transplant Anatomic Bank.

As a service of the prestigious North Shore-LIJ Health System, the third largest health system in the United States, the Lions Eye Bank provides fresh, high-quality ocular tissue for transplant and medical research.  In fact, our reputation for quality standards and stringent donor screening sets us apart from others in the field.

We offer ocular tissue for:

  • Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK)
  • Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK)
  • Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK)
  • Keratoprosthesis (KPRO)
  • Tectonic/Patch Grafting
  • Scleral Grafts
  • Research and/or Medical Education

Our team of highly trained and dedicated professionals is ready to serve your ocular tissue needs. We appreciate the opportunity of servicing our many existing transplant surgeons and look forward to welcoming new surgeons to our client base.

We are pleased to announce that we have just moved our Eye Bank program to Franklin Hospital Medical Center.  This move into much larger space accompanies the purchase of state of the art processing equipment.  We are excited that we will soon expand our scope of services and will, for example, soon be able to offer pre-cut corneas for DSAEK.  Please stay tuned for updates on our progress.
