The Hope Lions heard from Steve Staples on Monday May 23rd. Staples is the Technical Director for the Arkansas Lions Eyebank and Lab. The facility is part of UAMS. Staples detailed how the Lions Eyebank harvests corneas and other eye tissue for transplants. The method of recovery has changed in recent years, much different from when volunteers harvested the tissue at funeral homes. The recovery is now undertaken by professionals in Little Rock.
