The European Eye Bank Association (EEBA) is a technical-scientific organization comprising individual and non-profit institutional members from eye banks across Europe and beyond.
This Guideline has been formulated to assist eye bank procurement and retrieval staff in their routine donor screening for SARS-Cov-2 and we trust that the pocket chart format will be useful and practical.
Nevertheless, this document should be used in conjunction with local/regional/national exclusion and deferral criteria determined by competent health authorities, risk assessment instructions from the ECDC, and the selection/exclusion guidelines proposed by GAEBA.
In addition, the social anamnesis of each potential donor should be included into each individual risk assessment to determine donor eligibility (e.g. includes close contact to COVID-19 infected persons, vaccination for COVID-19).
The European Eye Bank Association (EEBA) is a technical-scientific organization comprising individual and non-profit institutional members from eye banks across Europe and beyond. Founded with the simple objective of sharing information regarding eye-banking, the Association is today the leading pan-national association in Europe.
In this section you will find an overview about EEBA Eye Banks and information about applicable organ/tissue donation Legislation and Quality Assurance matters in the countries associated with the EEBA.
It is my great pleasure to address you as the new EEBA President, and to present you with my vision for the three years of my Presidency. I would like to express my gratitude to the Immediate Past President John Armitage for his achievements in the development of the Association.
