Vision - Transform visual system trauma care for our armed forces and the nation
The Vision Research Program (VRP) was established by Congress in fiscal year 2009 (FY09) to fund impactful military-relevant vision research that has the potential to significantly improve the health care and well-being of Service members, Veterans, their family members and caregivers, and the American public. The VRP’s program area aligns with the Sensory Systems task area of the Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program, a core research program of the Defense Health Agency. The VRP was administered by the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center from FY09 to FY12 and was transitioned to the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) for administration starting with the FY13 program cycle.
