Clinical Trials in Ophthalmology
The Department of Ophthalmology maintains a strong commitment to medical research, which contributes to advances in ophthalmology and related areas of medicine through involvement in clinical investigations. Such research seeks to conquer eye disease, prevent blindness, and restore vision.
Why Should I Participate in a Clinical Trial?
Participation in clinical trials helps researchers uncover better ways to prevent, diagnose, treat, and understand diseases of the eye. In addition, clinical trials provide access to treatments which are otherwise unavailable.The information gained from clinical trials helps other people facing similar conditions.
