Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are a necessary part of the process of developing new approaches to treating retinal conditions and help us understand retinal diseases more thoroughly. The specific trials we are conducting change regularly, but are all focused on optimizing outcomes for patients with retinal diseases. There are many potential benefits to participating in a clinical trial, including helping to advance the field of retinal diseases which include the most common causes of blindness in the USA and most developed countries around the world. Each clinical study has specific criteria that participants must meet. If you’re interested in participating in a clinical trial, please ask your doctor
