Your decision to participate in a clinical trial is a personal one.  It is also voluntary.  You may change your mind at any time.  It is important that you ask questions to ensure you understand the trial and your role as a participant.  You must also understand the potential risks and benefits of participating.

Potential risks include:

  • No benefit to you even if others experience benefits
  • Less benefit than you or your doctors hoped and possibly less benefit than an existing treatment
  • Unanticipated short-term or long-term side effects
  • More frequent visits to your doctor’s office
  • More lengthy eye exams

Potential benefits include:

  • Access to the latest treatments before they are widely available
  • Possible compensation for your time and reimbursement for extra services
  • More frequent monitoring of your condition
  • Improved medical knowledge that can benefit others

If you choose to participate in a clinical trial, your health and vision will be monitored very closely by our doctors and research staff.  They bring extensive knowledge and experience to clinical trials and patient care.  Please contact us at 318-325-2610 x326 for information about a clinical trial in one of these areas:
