    Dr. Olivia Lee takes you behind the scenes of a cornea transplant, from the eye bank to the OR. This video shows the whole process, from the time-sensitive task of obtaining the donor cornea to extensive tissue processing and precise donor preparation. This video was produced with the assistance of Sightlife Eyebank in Seattle, Wash. and the Doheny Eye Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
