The Premium Choice for Glaucoma and Corneal Applications

Sterilizing corneal and sclera tissue expands the usability of donated tissue to further honor our commitment to our donors and their families.

Glaucoma Applications

The use of sterile irradiated corneal and scleral patch grafts prevents the risk of tube exposure in glaucoma drainage device (GDD) procedures while also reducing the risk of infection and tissue rejection. OptiGraft sterile allografts have a long shelf life, can be stored at room temperature, and are ready to use, reducing waste due to tissue perishability and thus increasing the potential availability of high-quality tissue for implantation.

Corneal Applications

Sterile, acellular corneal tissue is becoming more widely used for corneal procedures and tissue irradiation has largely been the most successful sterilization technique. By implementing tissue sterilization into our line of services, sterile cornea can replace the use of live cell cornea in cases that do not require endothelial cells and reduce the imminent risk of rejection. The immunosuppressive effect of irradiation sterilization directly addresses the concern of graft failure due to recipient immune rejection1.
