At the Wagner Macula & Retina Center, we are currently participating in a total of 6 clinical trials with a previous footprint in over 30 clinical trials! The clinical trials are carefully screened and they provide the means to meet the needs of our community. Patients who are enrolled in these trials get the best opportunity for novel treatments while remaining safe and in the hands of Dr. Alan Wagner and Dr. Kapil Kapoor. Patients also benefit from these trials aside from the wonderful treatment. There is potential compensation for applicable clinical trials, along with drug treatment at no cost for qualifying study patients. We are actively participating in the following clinical trials:
Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Retinal Vein Occlusion
*symbol is to signify Wagner Macula & Retina Center is currently enrolling in that clinical trial
