Cochrane corner

Cochrane Eyes and Vision (CEV) prepares and promotes access to systematic reviews of interventions for preventing or treating eye conditions and/or visual impairment, and helping people adjust to visual impairment or blindness.

The group also undertakes reviews of diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) and prognosis relevant to eye health care.

In this Cochrane corner, members can search for systematic reviews (ongoing and published) on vitreoretinal surgery covered by CEV.

Each title links to the published protocol or review in the Cochrane Library. These systematic reviews provide the best available evidence on the topics covered and are highly recommended”
