  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

As it is the first trial in Japan to establish the eye-bank, the system and procedure of the United States eye-banks were refcred.

The purpose of the eye-bank is not only to collect and derive the eye from the donor to the surgeon but to do a research, to educate the surgeon in keratoplasty surgery and to guid a social campaign for the prevention of blindness. The eye-bank system in the United States was started in 1939 by the Down Society in San Francisco and much developed since 1944. At present,18 or more eye-banks are full in work.
