Joint Research to Prevent Blindness & American Academy of Ophthalmology Award for IRIS Registry Research 2022

Description

The American Academy of Ophthalmology IRIS® Registry (Intelligent Research In Sight) is the largest single-specialty medical database in the world (learn more about IRIS Registry). Latest IRIS Registry participation numbers show that there are: -

  • 15,601 physicians contracted to integrate with electronic health records from 2,950 practices
  • 440.72 million patient visits
  • 73.85 million unique patients

The IRIS Registry is a unique resource for the evaluation of critical questions in ophthalmology. IRIS Registry contains data on the following disease conditions to provide a few specific examples:

  •          The rate of endophthalmitis after cataract surgery; the visual outcome of patients with endophthalmitis; and specific risk factors associated with developing endophthalmitis.
    • The rate of endophthalmitis after anti-VEGF injections across different agents, and the comparative effectiveness of these agents based on visual acuity outcomes.
    • The prevalence of myopic choroidal neovascularization in the United States, based on both diagnostic code information and clinical data.
    • The treatment patterns for patients with myopic choroidal neovascularization, including the visual acuity outcomes for those treated and those not treated
