The Save Sight Registries was created in 2007 as a large-scale population-based treatment outcomes registry to track the long-term outcomes of different ophthalmic diseases. It was introduced with the goal of quality improvement in management and benchmarking standards of care of specific eye conditions that can be treated with available and emerging treatments. Previously, these would be studied via clinical trials. However, clinical trials are limited by its stringent criteria that may not realistically correlate with the nature of clinical practice. Registries such as the Save Sight Registries allow for the investigation of “real world” outcomes of the treatment of ophthalmic diseases.
This secure web-based data collection tool was developed as an extension of the Fight Retinal Blindness! Project, and is available free-of-charge for clinicians. Data collection is anonymised.
Current modules incorporated into the Registries include:
