Clinical trials make new treatments possible by ensuring the safety and efficacy of promising new therapies and medical devices.

Clinical research is incredibly important as being involved in a clinical trial can shape the way ophthalmic diseases are treated in the future and can positively affect others who are suffering from the same condition. Clinical studies are essential for any new medications or devices or new indications for these therapies to be FDA-approved and used extensively by patients.

Advancements in therapies for disease through clinical trials can improve health, reduce pain and other symptoms from disease, and can increase life expectancy and quality of life.
