Port City’s Corneal Donation Program
Many of us have experienced the heartache of losing a beloved pet, and understand that the grief can sometimes be overwhelming if we cannot find meaning in the loss. As in human medicine, if we are able to help another through organ donation, this act can not only help you walk through the sometimes unbearable sadness you are feeling, but also may help bring about healing.
Here at Port City, we have the ability to bank corneal donations to later transplant and save another pet’s eye. Our Ophthalmology doctors determine the patients that are in need of transplants during consults.
Information is available to families at the time of their goodbyes about donating. If they wish to donate, the corneas are saved until needed.
