Wilmington Eye Conducts Ophthalmic Clinical Trial for Dry Eye Disease

Dry Eye Disease affects up to 49 million Americans, and symptoms can be quite uncomfortable and may impact your day-to-day life. Common signs and symptoms of Dry Eye Disease include dryness, burning, itchiness, or a sandy/gritty sensation. If you’re experiencing any of these, you may have Dry Eye Disease.


How Clinical Trials Can Improve Care

With new clinical trials on the horizon, there is hope for patients experiencing Dry Eye Disease. Improvements in management for Dry Eye Disease are at the forefront of clinical research and may create an alternative to traditional care options that may not be providing relief for your symptoms.

Participation in clinical research offers access to new potential treatments and hope for relief of symptoms that have not been managed with available treatments. By getting involved in a clinical trial, you would potentially be improving both your quality of life and the quality of life of many others that are experiencing similar symptoms.
