Thinking of participating
in one of our trials?

Medical discoveries are not possible without volunteers like you. Check out what current trials we have to offer and what is asked of a research participant. We’d love to have you.

The study provides me with a possible path to vision improvement.  The FVR staff has been very caring and sensitive to my needs - a most positive experience.


I consider participating in this clinical trial as a privilege and am most satisfied with the care I receive. 


Slowly losing my vision to macular degeneration has been very difficult and at times depressing.  Participating in this study has been such a positive experience for me. One in which I hope will lead to a potential new treatment for macular degeneration.
