The Doheny Image Reading Center (DIRC) is a leading Doheny Eye Institute research facility. It was established in 2003 as a hub where researchers everywhere can send their high-tech photographic images of the eye for “reading” in a standardized fashion so that results from different institutes, centers, and industries are comparable across the board. This consistency speeds up the pace of discovery and the development of strategies for preventing, treating, and curing vision disorders.
