Eye Bank


The Comtrust Eye Bank, started in August 2000 is a member of the Eye Bank Association of India. A Corneal Transplantation Centre is functioning at the Comtrust Eye Hospital, as per the guidelines of ‘National Programme for Control of Blindness’ under Directorate General of Health Services, Government of India. The Eye Bank has the facility to collect corneas round the clock at the premises of the deceased or at any hospital in and around Calicut. The corneas thus collected are transplanted on the needy patients. We have so far, successfully conducted more than 302 corneal transplantations. All the services connected with the Eye Bank including the transplantation are offered entirely at free of cost.

The eye bank is provided with a Toll Free Number (1053) for easy access by the public

Though they are not with us today, their eyes are still alive….

Donation of eyes

Due to sustained awareness programmes for promotion of eye donations conducted by us from time to time, there is a steady rise in the number of donations to our Eye Bank. But even now there is a reluctance among general public for eye donation which, in fact is a very laudable and lasting gift that anyone can give.

Those who are residing in a radius of about 50 kms from our Calicut Base hospital are requested to contact us for eye donations. The pledge form for donation can be downloaded from the website.
