Fundus Photograph Reading Center

Leader in Ophthalmic Image Evaluation since 1970

The Fundus Photograph Reading Center (FPRC) was founded on the enduring principles of intellectual honesty, quality, relevance, innovation and staff satisfaction. We are the core imaging lab within the University of Wisconsin – Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences studying diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, uveitis and many more.

We serve a wide range of academic institutions, foundations, pharmaceutical companies and biotech firms including the National Eye Institute, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Diseases, Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network and the Department of Defense.
