Eye Retrieval Technician Training

KGMU UP Community Eye Bank in Lucknow has, in the short span of 3 years already supplied more than 1750 corneas for sight restoring surgeries in Uttar Pradesh. In the quest towards elimination of corneal blindness they have also created a center of excellence for eye bank training, which started operations last year and has already trained 17 eye bank personnel.
