Clinical Trials

At El Paso Eye Surgeons, P.A., we are dedicated to providing the most technologically advanced therapy both on the market and currently under investigation. Because of our vast surgical experience, we have been invited to participate in a number of clinical trials. We are a part of a number of ongoing Food and Drug Administration Phase 3 clinical trials as well as industry sponsored trials, and observational studies. We are also actively involved in sharing our own clinical outcomes worldwide via publication in peer-reviewed medical literature and major ophthalmic national and international conferences. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about regarding our current or previous research.
