PODCAST: Protecting the rights of eye donors

Did you know eye donation is the most common form of donation?

Donation saves lives. More new patients require a corneal transplant each year than any other form of transplantation.

This week on More Than Meets the Eye, CERA’s official Podcast, Community Engagement Officer, Steve Hurd, speaks to Dr Graeme Pollock OAM and Heather Machin, from the Lions Eye Donation Service at CERA, about the importance of eye tissue donation and what the recently released ‘Barcelona Principles‘ means for Australians and the global community when dealing with organ and tissue donation.

This week is DonateLife Week. CERA encourages all Australians to register their donation decision and discuss their donation decisions with their loves ones.
