Current Studies

We currently have many active studies and we continually have a number of trials in the developmental stage. The studies range from new ophthalmic devices to treat blepharospasm to retinal gene therapy for inherited genetic disease. At the Oxford Eye Hospital, we are incredibly fortunate to have a number of world class ophthalmologists who devote their time & expertise to clinical trials, across a variety of specialities.
