“Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a one-year contract by Base Technologies, Inc., to support the development of the Defense and Veterans Eye Injury and Vision Registry (DVEIVR) for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The registry will track the occurrence, treatment, and outcomes of all eye injuries or visual dysfunction experienced by members of the Armed Forces while serving on active duty.”
The eye registry is something the BVA has worked hard to promote. One of our points when we testified last January before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations was the need to establish an eye registry to track the eye-injured returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. This system will allow injured servicemembers to have their conditions tracked from the time of injury until death thus providing the best possible care and valuable research information.
