The future of retina care lies in the vigorous pursuit of new knowledge and improved technology. From the very beginning, Illinois Retina Associates has been committed to advancing the field of retina care through clinical research. We have participated in numerous research studies conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Eye Institute (NEI) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Our physicians have served as principal investigator or co-investigator in dozens of clinical trials that cover every aspect of vitreoretinal disease and treatment, including:
- Age-related Macular Degeneration
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinal Detachment
- Central Vein Occlusion
- Branch Vein Occlusion
- Macular Hole
- CMV Retinitis
- Retinopathy of Prematurity
- Endophthalmitis Vitrectomy
- Scleral Buckle
- And many more.
These are trials that eligible patients may still enroll in.
These are active or past studies which our doctors have served as principal investigators or co-investigators.
