Type: Website
Region: United Kingdom

The British Ophthalmological Surveillance Unit (BOSU) has been set up by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists with support from the Iris Fund For The Prevention Of Blindness (now Fight for Sight). It is a facility to enable ophthalmologists to participate in the nation-wide surveillance of uncommon ophthalmological conditions.

The unit will rely upon a monthly response from consultant and associate specialist ophthalmologists in the United Kingdom about new cases of the conditions stated on the BOSU Reporting Card. When a respondent reports a new case of one of the conditions under study BOSU will pass this information on to a researcher for investigation.
