    EHR-IRIS Registry Integration

    We have had difficulty identifying pre and post op lid position descriptions.  To improve capture of this measures, it would be helpful if you could document these in your electronic health record notes:

      1. “Normal or normalized lid position” in your assessment and notes within 90 days of surgery OR
      2. “Abnormal or not normalized lid position” in your assessment and notes within 90 days of surgery
