Yourway Transport works with a majority of eye banks nationwide, meeting the special transportation needs involved in cornea transplant. Yourway will exhibit these special handling and customized transportation solutions at the EBAA Annual Meeting.  The Annual Meeting to be held at the Westin Seattle Hotel, June 17-20, 2009 in Seattle.

Eye banks purchase state-of-the-art equipment, supplies and services to aid in sight restoration. They set the pace for change in the community and are constantly looking for new products, services and technologies.   Now, more than 33,000 cornea transplants are performed each year in the United States.

While cornea transplant surgery was always highly successful, advanced medical technology has improved the success rate to approximately 95 percent.  Since the cornea has no blood supply, it is seldom subject to the rejections that plague other organ transplants. In the beginning, cornea transplant patients had to remain in the hospital for up to two weeks, their heads held still with sandbags to safeguard against rejection.
Now, surgical microscopes and improved instrumentation expedite the procedure for both the surgeon and the patient. Today, cornea transplants are often done on an out-patient basis, and many are made possible with the help of transportation from Yourway Transport.

Two things about eye banking do remain the same—the smile recipients have when their sight is restored and their gratitude to the generous donors who made it possible.

    Body building is a process of increasing muscle hypertrophy to its maximum level through weight training, adequate caloric intake, and enough rest. Body building may also be a competitive sport wherein body builders – individuals who participate in this type of activity – are judged by a panel based on their physique and aesthetic appearance.
