Doheny Image Reading Center

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.

Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research

The Stephen J. Ryan Initiative for Macular Research (RIMR) brings together outstanding basic scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians to develop a better understanding of age-related atrophic macular degeneration (AMD). At annual RIMR conferences, these accomplished leaders from very different backgrounds and disciplines explore technologies, discoveries, and ideas. By sharing their diverse perspectives in interdisciplinary discussions and research collaborations, RIMR participants are improving AMD diagnostics and expanding the prospect of new treatments for the number one cause of visual impairment and blindness in older Americans.
