Abstract: 

As surance of the qual i ty and safety of corneas meant for transplantation is a key responsibility of eye banks. While donor testing and medical assessment mitigate the risk of disease transmission from donor to recipient, the quality of corneas is crucial to successful transplantation in terms of both graft survival and visual rehabilitation. With the development and increasing application of lamellar techniques for selective replacement of dysfunctional layers of the cornea, different aspects of corneal quality need to be prioritized by eye banks and corneal transplant surgeons, depending on the intended surgical procedure.
