Ophthalmology Clinical Trials

The University of  Virginia Department Of Ophthalmology faculty members conduct their own research to investigate new treatment options for ophthalmic diseases and conditions. The department is actively involved in many sponsored clinical trials to test new ophthalmic procedures and treatments. In recent years, the department has participated in clinical trials to investigate new treatments for diabetic macular edema, geographic atrophy, and neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Additionally, the department is investigating screening retinopathy of prematurity with RetiVue wide-field imaging.
