Our ophthalmic research, clinical trials, and a fully staffed research division are key components of Retina Group of Florida’s dedication to finding treatment options for patients.
Clinical trials are a very significant part of our research because they allow us to bring potential treatment options to you long before they are available to the general population. We currently are involved in more than a dozen clinical trials, including some that may restore sight for some people with macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Retina Group of Florida is a prominent member of the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Network, a select group of physicians conducting clinical trials in partnership with the National Eye Institute. Your doctor will know if you are a candidate for any of these exciting new discoveries.
Some of our physicians also serve as clinical faculty members of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Florida Atlantic University School of Medicine and principal investigators in ground-breaking advances in the treatment of eye diseases, in addition to their full-time medical practices. This dedication to advanced medical science is just part of our vision for the future in retinal health care.
