Report of Eye Bank.—
The Stanford University Eye Bank supplied corneas for twenty-four eye graft operations during its second year of operation. Hospitals in San Francisco were the major source of corneas, but eyes were also supplied from Oakland, San Jose, Auburn, Burlingame, Redwood City, Stockton, Tulare and San Diego. Many of the operations performed at Stanford Hospital were on patients from out of town. All Pacific Coast eye surgeons qualified to perform the eye graft operation are eligible to use the services of the Eye Bank, which operates without cost to either patient or surgeon except for a small service fee. Persons who wish to will their eyes to the Eye Bank for use in corneal transplant operations after their deaths may do so through forms available on application to the Eye Bank, Stanford University Hospitals, Clay and Webster Streets, San Francisco.
