Eye banks are institutions that are take up the responsibility of collecting and then processing corneas that are donated by people and also distributing the corneas to corneal implant surgeons who are trained enough at their work. The eye banks are generally regulated by the local health system present in a state or city and eye banks are also considered to be an important part of the local health system of a state or a city. Eye banks in India are generally found to be attached with major hospitals and there are some eye banks in India that possess separate buildings for the proper execution of their responsibilities. Eye banks that are located in India and abroad carry out the process of cornea harvesting through surgery. Corneal harvesting is a process where the cornea or the whole eye of a dead person is removed through surgery. There are many eye banks located in Gandhinagar that carry out the process of corneal harvesting. Not only Gandhinagar, but some of the major cities of India are found to possess certain eye banks that are very good at executing their services in the form of eye banks that are generally established for the well-being of the citizens of any country or state.
