Clinical Trials in Ophthalmology

Since its founding in 1820, the mission of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) has been for excellence in patient care for eye disease as well as education of eye care providers. To maintain excellence, research must be an integral part of this mission.

Researchers at NYEE were among the first to use the laser in treating retinal diseases. Today, the Department of Ophthalmology maintains a strong commitment to medical research, which contribute to advances in Ophthalmology and related areas of medicine.

Research of medical practitioners is facilitated by a staff of research scientists, neuro-ophthalmolgists, pathologists, and electrophysiologists, who likewise conduct independent research in their respective areas.

NYEE continues to be involved in many clinical and translational research projects. This site makes information about these trials available to all. The active protocols have information about:

  • the issue being studied and goal for the research
  • inclusion and exclusion criteria
  • contact person
  • other pertinent information

Retina – Diabetic Retinopathy

Retina – Macular Degeneration

Retina – Macular Telangectasia

NYEE Eye Research Centers

Marrus Adaptive Optics Imaging Laboratory

State of the art, cutting edge, high-resolution adaptive optics (AO) Imaging System allows direct visualization of individual rod and cone photoreceptor cells, retinal pigment epithelium cells, and white blood cells. AO imaging has changed the way vision scientists and ophthalmologists see the retina, helping to clarify our understanding of retinal structure, function, and the etiology of various retinal pathologies. Learn more about the Marrus Adaptive Optics Imaging Laboratory

Advanced Retinal Imaging Laboratory

This specialty facility explores new technologies for imaging the human retina in order to enhance our understanding of the anatomy, physiology and visual function. Learn more about the Advanced Retinal Imaging Laboratory

Glaucoma Services

Clinical service at the forefront of innovation in diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the understanding and treatment of glaucoma. Learn more about Glaucoma Services
