About the ECCTR Project

Cornea transplantations Worldwide, the cornea is the most frequently transplanted intact tissue with over 180,000 transplants performed annually.

In Europe, an estimated 30,000 cornea transplantations are performed annually.
Corneal disease is the second cause of blindness worldwide.
Corneal transplantation remains the main method for rehabilitation once vision is affected, pain reduction is needed or the integrity of the eye is at risk.

Who we are
