For Our Patients

Clinical Trials and Research

Clinical trials are designed to test the safety and efficacy of new approaches to preventing, detecting, and treating disease. Research and clinical trials also continuously look for new ways to use existing treatments, new drugs, surgical procedures and devices.

Florida Retina Institute clinical trial participants may enroll to possibly receive the newest treatment for their vitreoretinal conditions, as well as to have additional care and attention from clinical trial staff and with the results and outcome of their trial, help researchers find better treatments for future patients.
