- Discovers new drugs to treat conditions such as dry-eye, glaucoma, allergies, pink-eye and many more.
- Tries out safe and innovative eye testing to assist in diagnosing other health conditions such as Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis.
A study may or may not help you personally. However, in the future, the results could help others who have health problems. Your voluntary participation is valuable to society.
