Clinical Studies

Patients have numerous medical care options but often feel uncertain about their choices in our rapidly changing healthcare environment. You will find more cutting-edge, innovative medical and surgical technologies at Vold Vision’s Research Center than at most major academic medical centers.

Research and Clinical Studies

As global innovation and clinical research leaders, we utilize medical technologies found only at a few eye care centers worldwide. We at Vold vision seek to serve you in such a way that you know that our passion for caring for people drives our motivation.

Our doctors have participated in nearly 20 FDA-approved clinical trials in the past year. These studies include the development of innovative surgical devices and techniques, pharmaceutical products, and drug delivery systems.

Our specific areas of interest include minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, lens replacement (cataract) surgery, and the development of new medications and methods of drug delivery for glaucoma, intraocular inflammation, dry eyes, and infection treatments.

Many of these products have received approval in Europe and Canada but are currently unavailable in the United States. The clinical studies allow us to provide enhanced ophthalmic care at no cost to the patients. 

There are many benefits to participating in clinical studies.

Benefits to Patients

Participation in ophthalmic research and innovation is integral to our clinical practice at Vold Vision. We strongly believe that research and innovation enhance patient care and allow us to give back to our patients and society. 

With nearly 20 years of clinical research experience, we have found that our patients benefit tremendously from our clinical research programs. We are excited about the breakthrough technologies we might provide in the months and years ahead. The motivation of our efforts at Vold Vision is to serve you better and improve ophthalmic care throughout the world.

Vold Vision is selective in our choices of clinical studies. After carefully reading the protocol, we select studies to ensure the studies are grounded in solid scientific evidence. We want only the best for our patients and the eye care industry. 

Vold Vision consistently participates in clinical studies. Patients who participate are compensated for their time and efforts and play a significant role in advancing vision care.
