About the IRIS Registry
The American Academy of Ophthalmology IRIS® Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight) is the nation's first comprehensive eye disease clinical registry. The Academy developed it as part of the profession's shared goal of continual improvement in the delivery of eye care.
The IRIS Registry is the only specialty society-sponsored eye care specialized registry. Active engagement with the IRIS Registry enables ophthalmologists to earn bonus points in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System. Because the IRIS Registry is the only eye care specialized registry, it is the only specialized registry that the Academy recommends to its members. All ophthalmologist members of the Academy have access to the registry as a free member benefit.
