The Ophthalmology department here at RSCH has a strong focus on research, over the last 5 years the research portfolio within Ophthalmology has steadily grown. The number of successful trials has increased along with the disease speciality, now ranging from Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy to Retinal Vein Occlusions and Vitreomacular Traction.
Our dedicated team strive to deliver exciting new treatments through running clinical trials that broaden the research portfolio but most importantly improve patient outcomes.
We have a dedicated research support team that includes Consultant Ophthalmologists, research nurses and trial coordinators.
