Desert Retina Consultants is committed to advancing the field of ophthalmology by our involvement in clinical trials. Our doctors are focused on studies aimed at finding better treatments for our patients with sight threatening eye diseases. Dr. Clement Chan and his team of coordinators have been actively involved in research studies since 1995 and are proud to increase the overall standard of vision care for patients through new technologies and therapies.
Our research efforts have been behind the FDA approval of several therapies for macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema over the past 15 years. Our team has completed over 50 studies, including studies sponsored by the National Institute of Health, major pharmaceutical companies and several sponsored by Dr. Chan.
We are a proud member of the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network (drcr.net).
