Have you ever visited our offices and seen these large trucks marked Mobile Dry Eye Unit? These vehicles travel between research sites and brought here to test new dry eye drops or dry eye treatments.
At The Eye Care Institute, we have conducted over 100 trials, and our research has resulted in 11 new medications, implants, or devices being approved by the FDA. We have been so successful that we now have two family practice physicians and an internal medicine physician working with us in our Butchertown Clinical Trials division.
If you have Dry Eye Disease (your body doesn’t produce enough tears, or you have a lot of tears but they are insufficient to nourish the eyes) there has never been a better time to participate in a Dry Eye Disease clinical trial. We have 4 dry eye clinical trials getting ready to start. As a participant you receive:
- Free treatment while enrolled in the trial
- Free study medication
- Payment for your time
- The satisfaction of knowing your efforts will help others
