We are proud to work with NHS Organ Donation to inform our patients, their families and friends about cornea donation.
Did you know that cornea donation for transplant may be an option following your death or that of a loved one? The gift of sight can provide great comfort to many patients and their families at a time of difficulty, when experiencing the loss of a loved one.
Within Trinity, we are aware that this act of generosity can give hope to others by improving or enabling sight, however, we realise this is not a step that everyone feels comfortable to take.
Eye donation takes place up to 24hrs after death and can take place at the hospice, funeral directors, or hospital mortuary.
