Clinical Trials at Sterling Vision
Clinical trials help advance the course of vision research and provide hope for new and better treatments for eye conditions. At Sterling Vision, we carefully curate the most scientifically sound clinical trials in which our patients can participate.
How Do They Work?
In general, clinical trials go through multiple “phases” across several
years before a treatment can be used in the general public.
Clinical studies are possible because of the volunteers who participate in them. Being a volunteer in a clinical trial typically requires an investment of time as additional testing and examinations are performed according to a predetermined protocol and timeline.
