Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I would not really worry about this. Cornea donors are tested for a large number of diseases before they are accepted as a donor and any evidence of a STD at the time of death would be discovered.
Also the cornea is a blood-free tissue.....unlike something such a liver transplant which is full of the donors blood.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
