Research

Clinical research has been a critical component of CVRC since the practice opened in 1996. Our physicians have always been dedicated to advancing the understanding and treatment of retinal and macular diseases through investigative trials.

Throughout the years, we have participated in numerous national clinical trials. Our highly respected researchers have tested new therapies for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusive diseases and retinal detachment, and conducted a host of other cutting-edge research.

The efforts of our physicians and supporting staff members—complemented by the cooperation of our patients and referring doctors—have resulted in FDA approval of many currently available treatments. Our research team is committed to carefully selecting well-designed, safe trials that test the most promising new treatments and ensure our patients experience the best medical care possible.

The vast majority of clinical trials are conducted in our Hagerstown, MD office.
