Research Studies

Our practice is dedicated to the advancement of patient care through research. We participate in clinical studies to help find solutions for today’s issues in ophthalmology and optometry. Our clinical trials examine the safety and efficacy of a treatment protocol, medication (e.g. eye drops) or device (e.g. contact lenses).

Recent studies conducted by Heart of America Eye Care include:

  • Glaucoma eye drops and glaucoma procedures
  • Cataract
  • Eye drop absorption and generic eye drop efficacy
  • Allergic, viral and bacterial conjunctivitis
  • Dry eye
  • Droopy eyelid (ptosis)
  • Chalazion (stye)
  • Contact lenses and contact lens solution
  • Spectacle lenses
