Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group

Joacaba, Brazil


The Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group aims to prepare, maintain and promote access to systematic reviews of interventions used to prevent or treat eye diseases and/or visual impairment. The work of the CEVG is carried out by over 300 members in more than 30 countries. The CEVG editorial team is located in London, UK and the CEVG US Project (CEVG@US) is a US-based satellite at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

The CEVG@US is funded by the National Eye Institute. The overall objective of CEVG@US is to develop a critical mass of US-based vision researchers and practitioners who are trained in preparing and using systematic reviews. The CEVG@US aims to accomplish four main goals: 1) Expand awareness of evidence-based health care in general and in eyes and vision specifically, 2) Develop a critical mass of vision researchers who are able to perform and interpret systematic reviews, and train others to do the same; 3) Develop a critical mass of clinicians who use the results of systematic reviews as an evidence base to guide their practice, and to train others to do the same; 4) Generate an increased number of systematic reviews in priority vision research areas, published in The Cochrane Library and in the traditional vision research literature.
