the development of best practices and clinical education, on eye 
injuries and/or visual dysfunctions/disorders incurred by members of 
the Armed Forces; supports collaborative DoD and VA programs that may 
provide vision screening, diagnosis, and rehabilitative management to 
those with eye injuries and/or visual dysfunctions/disorders, and 
guides vision research, at DoD medical treatment facilities and VA 
medical centers; and is a management tool for statistical analysis, 
longitudinal data collection, reporting, evaluating program 
effectiveness, guiding research, and informing policy.
