Research

CRA offers a world-renowned, in-house clinical research program, based out of Golden, CO. We participate in some of the most innovative research and clinical trials surrounding retina treatments, diagnosis, and cures for blindness.

We believe that ongoing research into disease states and treatments is a vital part of improving our patients’ well-being. We are committed to participating in cutting-edge research, allowing our patients to have access to the latest treatment and drug options, while furthering scientific developments.

What is a clinical trial? A clinical trial is a study that helps test whether a new treatment or medication is safe and effective. It can also look to see which older treatments produce the best results. Studies have been effective in finding the best way to care for your retinal disorder.

Why participate in a clinical trial? 

  • Access to new treatments and drugs before they are released to the market
  • Help advance what is known about new treatments
  • Extra care, attention, and follow up provided by our trained and dedicated research professionals
  • Possible improvement in physical well-being
  • Other benefits may include: stipends, driving allowances, etc.

Before you consent to join a clinical trial, it is important for you to have all the information you need to be confident about your decision. When you choose to take part in a clinical trial, you may or may not improve your health. You may also be one of the first to try a promising new drug or treatment. Be sure you have answers to all your questions, and full knowledge of what is involved. Then, weigh your options and discuss with your family or support system.
