Clinical research and clinical trials facts "Clinical" as a term refers to the medical care of real patients. Clinical trials are a form of medical research that follow a defined protocol that has been carefully developed to answer a specific patient care question. The Lowy Medical Research Institute is hosting a public scientific symposium with a focus on vision research and vascular disease. Distinguished speakers include experts in the field of vision and cardiac research, with an emphasis diseases with a vascular component. The symposium is free, but registration is required. The Vision Research Coordinating Center (VRCC) is a joint collaboration between the UH Eye Institute and the CWRU Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The center was established in to coordinate all ophthalmic clinical trials contracted through UH or CWRU. Clinical Trials The Byers Eye Institute at Stanford is committed to advancing ophthalmic care and discovering novel treatments for blinding conditions. We have multiple NIH, Foundation, Donor, and Industry sponsored trials ongoing in a number of specialized areas.

  There's currently no treatment for the condition, which can lead to sudden vision loss, but a clinical trial is testing a new experimental drug.   The clinical term for the loss of near vision is presbyopia (prez-bee-‘O-pee-uh). It is possible to have poor near vision, but good distance vision. Buying a pair of reading glasses is a quick way to improve near vision. While “readers” will help you read a book or dial a telephone number, they will not help you see far objects/5(43). Clinical Research. Clinical trials play a large and growing role in the medical options patients have today and in the future. Nearly 4, experimental drug therapies are in active clinical trials today and that number will continue to grow as improvements are made in detecting disease, in understanding the root causes of acute and chronic illnesses, and in discovering medical .

What is a clinical trial. Clinical trials involve medical research with people. Clinical trials are medical research studies in which people, also called human subjects, volunteer to participate. A clinical trial is used to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an “intervention” to prevent, diagnose or treat an eye disease or disorder.
