Tissue Available, When You Need It

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank is recognized the world over for its expertise and leadership in eye banking. In any language, RMLEB means service, quality and compassion.

Proximity to one of the world’s largest and most advanced airports means reduced travel time for tissue, keeping surgeons on schedule.

Please note that FDA and EBAA regulations require U.S. eye banks to collect recipient information on each ocular tissue transplanted. Surgeons must return the required forms to be able to list patients.
