In addition to the advances we have made in basic science and translational research, the Dean McGee Eye Institute remains at the forefront of clinical medicine through our Clinical Trials initiative. Here at the institute, our physicians are investigating the latest in drug development and treatment strategies for a number of eye conditions. These studies are funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) and pharmaceutical industry.
Clinical trials are an essential step to foster the best in patient care while also offering patients the most modern, cutting edge treatment. Patients choose to participate in clinical trials for many reasons; they may have the opportunity to receive treatments with tremendous promise but are unavailable outside of a trial, or some simply appreciate the intrinsic feeling of contributing to the advancement of science.
See below for the current list of clinical trials at the Dean McGee Eye Institute in a wide variety of ophthalmology services.
