Glaucoma/Ocular Hypertension Clinical Study Information

What is a clinical trial?

Clinical trials explore whether a medical strategy, treatment or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies also may show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people.

Why clinical trials?

Clinical trials test new medications, devices and procedures not yet available to the general public. By being part of a clinical trial, participants may receive access to new technologies that wouldn’t be available otherwise, often at no or reduced cost.

As a participant in a clinical trial, patients are also directly helping the development and understanding of new technologies that may offer better care or a cure for sight-threatening and chronic diseases for future patients.

How do I get involved in a clinical trial?

If you suffer from glaucoma, cataracts or another ocular disease, talk to your doctor about the current trials being enrolled and if you would be a good candidate.

The current trials at the Eye Center of Northern Colorado are constantly changing. If you are interested in learning more about our current clinical trials, please contact Courtney Moon at (970) 419-2696 or email:
