Certifications

The East Tennessee Lions Eye Bank currently holds the highest possible certification by the EBAA (Eye Bank Association of America) with a 3 year certification. The EBAA is the governing agency of most U.S. Eye Banks and International Eye Banks.

The EBAA accompanied by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) inspect, register, and certify all eye banks as acceptable institutions for the recovery, processing, and distribution of human eye tissue for transplant.
