Clinical Trials at Mid Florida Eye

Mid Florida Eye’s selection to participate in national clinical trials allows us to offer our patients access to the most revolutionary research for advanced diagnostic and treatment options available.

Our physicians have participated in multiple clinical trials including device and medications studies. We are proud to have over two decade of research experience within the Central Florida community. We are always looking for new studies to offer our patients the benefit of cutting-edge technology and medications.

These clinical trials are a crucial component in developing new, more effective, sight saving and sight prolonging diagnostic techniques and treatments. Many of today’s gold-standard therapies are based on the results of previous trials, such as those we’ve conducted for the treatment of macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and other conditions.

A clinical trial may be the best way for individuals to get the most advanced, leading-edge treatment. Patients have access to new drugs and treatments before they are widely available, and because controlling and recording all factors is critical to the trial’s success, participants get excellent attention and are closely monitored and cared for.

Participation in a clinical trial is completely voluntary. Criteria for study participation is very stringent, and some people may not be eligible for participation. Limited number of participants are needed.

Why Participate In A Study

Millions of Americans suffer with vision impairment, among the most common disabilities in the U.S. Clinical research is an avenue for receiving promising new therapies that may not otherwise be available.
