Clinical Studies and Research
The Eye Institute of Utah performs all phases of Pharmaceutical and Medical Device clinical trials. We are unique in that we have surgical capabilities on site. It is a state-of-the-art facility that offers laser vision correction, retina-vitreous, glaucoma, cataract and oculoplastic surgery. In both our clinical and ambulatory surgical centers, we treat all aspects of eye disease and anomalies, such as dry eye, ocular infections and more. Clinical studies at The Eye Institute of Utah are conducted to determine the safety and effectiveness of new devices, drugs, or procedures for the treatment of ocular disease.
The development of medical knowledge and technology requires and depends on research sites playing an active role in the investigation and testing of products coming to market. We are experienced in pharmaceutical and pilot medical device clinical trials.
We currently have seven principal investigators on site with research experience varying from 5-35 years. Our principal investigators are knowledgeable, experienced and trained on GCP’s as well as the FDA Code of Regulations. Since The Eye Institute of Utah was established in 1980 as the first and largest office-based eye surgical center in Utah, we are able to enroll the vast majority of our patients from our own patient population.
Our study department has grown from one employee to a staff of four, full time employees dedicated to clinical research trials. Our mission is to provide outstanding support to our community, sponsors and patients with the highest regard for patient safety and privacy. We are dedicated to excellence in the clinical research arena; we will provide the highest quality work with integrity and efficiency. We see the value of investing in clinical research so we can improve the quality of eye care for generations to come.
