ABOUT US

Brief History

The Association of Eye Bank of Asia (AEBA) is formed under the auspices of the Asia Cornea Society in January 2009 as a supranational networking organization to bring eye banks in the region together to provide for:

  • Co-operative efforts to enhance, regularize and unify eye banking standards and tissue procurement guidelines. This will lay the path for more high quality eye banks in developing countries making tissue-sharing initiatives a reality ultimately resulting in more corneal transplants in Asia, thus one major step towards alleviating corneal blindness in the region.
  • Promote advocacy and educational support for eye donation programs specific to Asian cultures and religions.
  • Assistance in further development of current eye banks in Asia, and establishment of new eye banks where they are most needed.
  • Establishment of Centre of Excellence for eye banking education and training.
