The five-and-a-half cottah plot was inaugurated by Dr Samar K. Basak of Disha Eye Hospital, Barackpore, who requested the custodians to utilise it optimally. "I've seen many groups start off with promise but languish due to lack of funds or initiative. The management should try to generate income of its own instead of relying solely on donations," he said.

M. Srinivasan, MS, and Samar K. Basak, MD, DNB, FRCS, agree that Indian eye banks are moving in a positive direction, with a more systematic and multi-tiered approach to eye banking expected to be implemented by 2012.
Dr. Basak, medical director of the Prova Eye Bank and secretary of the EBAI, reiterated the importance of HCRPs and the option of in situ corneoscleral rim excision.He said McCarey-Kaufman medium preservation, compulsory serology for donors, and eye bank specular microscopy by trained personnel can also improve quality.
According to Dr. Basak, the EBAI is looking to implement a national three-tiered eye banking system.
The three-tiered system would include five regional eye bank training centers that would cover 45 fully functional eye banks that would draw from 2,000 eye donation centers.
The system, which has been submitted to the government for implementation by 2012, proposes to standardize donations and the donation process.
"In this way, both the quantity and quality can be assured," Dr. Basak said.
"Most of the corneal surgeons prefer a younger donor," Dr. Basak said."In HRCP, we are getting much younger donor tissue."
He added that the public, while aware of the need for eye donation, has yet to find motivation to change.
"Public education for eye banking is there," Dr. Basak said.
And the utilization is greater than 50%," Dr. Basak said.
Adopting the required request law and the three-tiered system that Dr. Basak spoke about will all play a prominent role for the future, Dr. Srinivasan said.
