Colorado Retina Associates offers a robust, in-house clinical research program to all of our patients. We participate in some of the most innovative research and clinical trials surrounding retina treatments, diagnosis, and cures for blindness. At Colorado Retina, 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 treatments and drug options, while furthering scientific developments and changing the future of retina.

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are essential in advancing medical knowledge and result in developing new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease.

Trials can also confirm if established treatments are equal to or better than new ones. At Colorado Retina we have been involved with hundreds of clinical research trials that have significantly advanced our understanding of eye disease and have made numerous new treatments available to our patients.

Our goal is to ultimately improve the health and quality of life of our patients, and research is one of the many ways we seek to achieve that.

Why Participate in a Clinical Trial?


Access to new treatments and drugs before they are released to the market


Help advance new treatments


Extra care, attention, and follow up provided by our trained and dedicated research professionals


Improvement in physical well-being and quality of life


Stipends, driving allowances, and other incentives
