Corneas are stored at a temperature of 31 °C, in a specially formulated medium. This offers the best possible environment for cornea preservation.
Corneas are shipped at temperatures ranging between 15 and 30 °C. Once shipped, corneas will not be taken back by us for any reason.
Corneas must not become too cold, because they are highly sensitive to large temperature fluctuations. For this reason, you are strongly advised not to refrigerate the corneas after receiving them at the hospital. The transport package containing the cornea can best be kept at room temperature.
