Advancing Eye Care
For the past 15 years, the Eye Center of Northern Colorado has been on the cutting edge of ophthalmic research to further advance treatments for patients who suffer from glaucoma, retinal diseases, cataracts and other debilitating conditions.
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 a part of a clinical trial, you are receiving the latest and greatest technology that wouldn’t be available to you otherwise often at no or reduced cost to you.
As a participant in a clinical trial, you are also directly helping the development and understanding of new treatments 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, dry eye, cataracts or other 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 what clinical trials we are currently enrolling in please contact Courtney Moon at (970) 419-2696 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
