The Clinical Research Program
The Clinical Research Program was established in 2005 to provide our doctors with the opportunity to participate in the development of new treatments that could potentially impact the eye health of people around the world. We wanted to offer patients cutting-edge alternatives available only through participation in clinical trials.
Our medical/surgical retina physicians have extensive clinical research experience and frequently have their research articles published in medical & scientific journals. They have participated in numerous clinical trials including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, surgical procedures and devices, uveitis, and more. A full-time research director administers the clinical studies and all research is reviewed by Institutional Review Boards as required by the FDA.
For more information about enrolling in one of our current clinical research studies, please contact our main office at 602-242-4928.
We also invite you to speak with one of our retina specialists during an appointment to see if you might qualify for one of our clinical studies.
