Help Research New Treatments

Clinical Trials

Our office participates in Phase II, III and IV pharmaceutical (drug) trials. 

These studies involve medications both FDA approved and currently on the market in the United States. Patients usually receive free study medications as well as compensation for study visits.

I believe that this is an excellent opportunity for you to become involved in the development of new medications and in the improvement of currently marketed drugs. Patients who participate in studies currently ongoing in my office, as well as those who have participated in the past, have been very supportive and appreciative of their involvement in clinical research. They learn about their eye conditions, current and future treatments, and they also get to be a part of the drug development process that helps bring new therapies to millions of eye patients worldwide.

If you would like to hear more about the studies we offer,  or you would like to enroll, please telephone our office at (310) 657-2777 , e-mail Scott at, or fill out the simple form at the bottom of the page.
