Clinical Trials and Clinical Research
Call our Clinical Research Coordinator at (502) 589-1500 to find out if participation in any of our studies for Dry Eye Disease, Cataract, Ocular, Allergies, LASIK laser vision correction, Glaucoma, Presbyopia, or Conjunctivitis may be right for you.
We regularly recruit patients (study subjects) to enroll in trials sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, surgical and medical equipment firms, and others attempting to prove the usefulness of a new pharmaceutical agents, treatments, surgical implants or diagnostic medical devices.
All of these clinical studies are done with the ultimate goal of getting the medication, treatment, implant or device to become approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
At The Eye Care Institute, we take your health, wellness and vision very seriously. That’s why we only participate in Phase II, III and IV trials, along with post-marketing studies. Specifically, after the treatment, device, implant or drug has been proven not to be harmful, we then participate in clinical trials to determine how successfully the item being tested works, and for how long.
