What is USEIR?
USEIR is a federation of individual state eye injury registries, collecting data in a standardized manner and sharing data via a common database. USEIR documents serious eye injuries (injuries judged by the reporting ophthalmologist to have a likelihood of resulting in permanent structural or function damage to the eye and/or orbit). USEIR is a volunteer, bylaws-driven organization governed by officers regularly elected by the directors of participating state registries.
Goals of USEIR Include:
