The portion of the eve trans- planted in such operations is limited to the cornea, the small lens-like sheet of tissue which curves over the pupil and iris of the eye much in the same way as a crystal curves over the face of a watch. The avail- ability of the human eye tissue is made possible by individ- uals who have pledged their eyes, on death, to the eye bank for such use. There are two types of corn- eal transplants: The lamellar (in which only a partial thick- ness of the cornea is used) and the penetrating (in which the entire thickness of the cor- nea is transplanted). In recent years, Bruce Hulbert said, round trephines (like cookie cutters) have been used surgi- cally, making the fashioning of grafts much easier. The lamel- lar graft, he stated, is tech- nically easier to perform, as the inside of the eye is not exposed during the procedure. Transplant grafts, said Bruce Rulberg are sutured with silk sutures of extremely fine dia- meter -- not much thicker than a human hair. The sutures are left in place for two to four weeks after the operation. Those interested in donating their eyes, on death, for sight- restoring corneal transplants, may secure a pledge card by contacting ALABAMA LIONS EYE BANK, 708 South 18th St., Birmingham, Ala. 35233 or any member of the Florala Lions Club.
