Clinical Research


Participating in clinical research is a long-standing part of the Associated Eye Care mission to provide excellence in patient care. We are proud to be part of these studies that allow us to be on the cutting edge of technology and to provide the latest innovations to our patients. In this way, we hope to improve outcomes and make these advancements available to future generations of patients.

We are grateful to the many patients who have participated in these trials. These FDA Clinical Trials allow our patients access to new technologies, treatments, medications, surgical techniques and devices years before they are available to the general public. Through clinical research, our doctors continue to be involved in the development and improvement of leading-edge ophthalmic techniques and products.

If you are a candidate for any of our active clinical studies, your doctor will discuss them with you at the time of your exam. Call 651-275-3000 to schedule an exam or request an appointment online.
