Types of Tissue – Age, Gender, Disease

Lions Eye Institute typically supplies ocular tissues with the following criteria:
  • High quality, low death-to-preservation time
  • Age, race, and gender-specific criteria
  • Control and diseased tissue including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy
  • Access to donor medical history available at the time of death (in some cases detailed ophthalmic records can be retrieved)
We also offer post-mortem validation of ocular disease:
  • AMD graded by fundus analysis using the Minnesota grading scale
  • Glaucoma graded by histological analysis of ganglion cell density of the optic nerve
