MellingMedical Partners with Lions VisionGift Advancing Visual Health Options for Texas Veterans

MellingMedical Partners with Lions VisionGift Advancing Visual Health Options for Texas Veterans

PR Newswire

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, MellingMedical, a leading supplier of medical supplies, equipment, devices and pharmaceuticals nationwide, announced their partnership with Lions VisionGift to provide corneal tissue to the Olin E. Teague Veterans' Medical Center in Temple, TX. Through a new blanket purchasing agreement (BPA), the partnership will increase the availability of corneal tissue within the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System. 

"Over 250,000 American veterans currently receive disability compensation for eye or vision conditions," Chris Melling, Founder and CEO of MellingMedical noted. "The MellingMedical partnership with Lions VisionGift will enable veterans suffering from sightlessness due to cornea disease or dysfunction to receive treatments requiring corneal transplantation and enable better eye health through the Department of Veterans Affairs."

Lions VisionGift is a non-profit organization founded in 1975 in recognition of the need for an eye bank to provide ocular tissue for transplants, research, and medical education. Since its inception, over 60,000 people have received the gift of sight from tissue procured and screened by Lions VisionGift, which works closely with transplant surgeons.

"We are delighted that MellingMedical has agreed to be a conduit to an important organization like the Teague Veterans' Medical Center," said Corrina Patzer, Chief Strategy Officer of Lions VisionGift. "Our donors can be especially proud of their legacy in the lives of veterans who have given so much for our country."
