Availability of Product
LEITR operates and controls OWSA from its headquarters in Tampa, Florida, USA. We do not in any way imply that the materials on the site or the products we offer are available as they may become unavailable or obsolete. LEITR offers ocular tissue to its members in a fair and equitable manner.
In order to accomplish product traceability, LEITR requires members to complete recipient follow-up forms on OWSA for each ocular tissue received for transplant. Failure to complete Recipient Forms, Post-Operative Reports, Adverse Reaction Reports (if applicable) and Tissue Disposal Forms (if applicable) on a timely manner may result in temporary account suspension of OWSA.
The terms of payments are 30 days from the date of Invoice unless otherwise changed by LEITR. There will be no refunds or credits given for ocular tissue once it departs LEITR, regardless if tissue is lost, destroyed or damaged. Payments via credit card can be made on your member account on the "Make A Payment" button. Wire transfer details will be noted on each invoice. You may determine the method of payment that is most convenient. If account is overdue, ISR reserves the right to assess late charges to your account.
