Agreed minimum data sets are crucial for the future of research into the nation's eye health.
Without data being collected in a consistent form, public health research of the kind so valuable in evidencing outcomes and planning the future of eye care provision is not possible. This project is therefore aiming to develop minimum data sets through consultation and piloting in some important areas of secondary care that are primarily optometric in focus.

The project involves a collaborative and multi-disciplinary Working Group for each area. The Working Group creates a draft dataset, which is refined after consultation.
