The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank prepares pre-sectioned DSAEK tissue in-house. This not only decreases transport time and costs but also offers a new service: the ultra-thin EK graft. Our Ultra-thin grafts are between 40 and 90 microns, far thinner than what most eye banks consider to be ultra-thin. Our expertise in the "double pass" technique ensures a quality that is backed by OCT imaging and post-sectioning specular microscopy every time.
RMLEB employs Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to measure the precise thickness of the prepared graft. Ordering your standard thickness or ultra-thin, pre-sectioned graft from the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank ensures a quality graft prepared by experienced technicians every time.
Tissue for IntraLase-Enabled Keratoplasty is also available. Both types of pre-sectioned tissue are prepared in compliance with applicable governmental laws and regulations relating to the procurement, storage, processing and distribution of human tissue.
The process adds only two days to the tissue placement process, so surgeries scheduled according to our scheduling policy (no more than 6 weeks in advance) can easily be accommodated. Please note that pre-sectioned tissues cannot be returned to the eye bank.
Please indicate your request for pre-sectioned tissue using the tissue request form.
