Clinical Research

Woman Looking Through a Microscope

The physicians of Philadelphia Eye Associates have proudly participated in FDA approved clinical research for almost 20 years. Eligible patients have the opportunity to be involved in the discovery process for new and potentially improved treatments for both medical and surgical eye diseases, such as glaucoma, allergy, dry eye, cataracts and refractive surgery. Our patient’s safety is always the primary concern of our doctors and staff.
