University of Wisconsin Fundus Photograph Reading Centers
The Fundus Photograph Reading Center (FPRC) is an independent organization within the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Incepted in 1970 to support the seminal NIH funded trials of laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy, FPRC has developed expertise in the evaluation of many ocular diseases, including neovascular AMD, atrophic AMD, diabetic macular edema, retinal vein occlusion macular edema, posterior uveitis, retinal dystrophies, AIDS-related ocular disease and cataract. Through its collaborations with NIH, the FPRC has developed the gold standard grading protocols for diabetic retinopathy and AMD. These and other grading protocols have been employed in the successful completion of numerous Phase 3 trials for many indications.
