Vision EBAA: 2013-2015 Strategic Plan

In November 2012, the EBAA Board of Directors approved our 2013-2015 Strategic Plan. It is the result of work by members of the Board, key committees and staff, as well as the feedback of the entire membership as collected through surveys, interviews and town hall sessions.

The strategic plan lays out EBAA’s efforts on five key initiatives (Advocacy, EBAA Brand/Member Value, International Engagement, EBAA Governance and the Future), and provides specific action items, measurable goals and clear metrics in each area.

EBAA Cost-Benefit Analysis of Corneal Transplant

On October 8, 2013, EBAA released the results of a six-month study which found that corneal transplants performed in the United States this year will result in nearly $6 billion in total net benefits over the lifetime of the recipients.

The study compared the medical cost of transplant procedures to the direct and indirect lifetime costs of the alternative – living with blindness or severe vision impairment. Since EBAA’s founding in 1961, more than one million men, women and children have received corneal transplants to restore vision and relieve pain from injury and disease to the eye.

We have always recognized the life-changing effect that sight restoration has on cornea recipients, but this study illustrates its economic benefit to the patient, family and society.
