Ophthalmology clinical trials can vary from 5 days up to 3 years, depending on the disease or indication being studied. Common indications include: dry eyes, glaucoma, conjunctivitis, macular degeneration, cataract surgery, vision correction surgery, and various retina diseases. Some trials offer participant compensation for time and travel. The primary concern of any clinical trial is the patient’s health, safety and welfare. All study visits are conducted by one or more of the physicians at Danbury Eye Physicians. Participation in clinical trials provides patients with the opportunity to have access to new medications or treatments which may improve their quality of life and impact the lives of patients in the future.
