Did you know that Colorado Eye Consultants has a robust clinical research department? Our research department partners with pharmaceutical companies to test cutting edge therapies for a wide range of ophthalmic disorders and diseases. With the help and participation of our patients, we can submit the needed data to the pharmaceutical companies to advance these therapies for approval for public use.
Our current research studies include:
