Clinical Trials

Research in the Community

Our team is responsible for clinical trials from initiation to completion for faculty at Shiley Eye Institute. Additionally, all UCSD departments can contract our services for trials they are hosting. We work with PIs and study coordinators to ensure their patients receive what they need clinically regarding the eyes and what their procedures call for.

Services exclusively for Retinal Dystrophy Clinic

The community ophthalmology team provides the support to patients to extend their care to the community. We provide referrals to low vision services, hearing services, guide dog charities, assistance with applications to the Social Security Administration, complete applications for transport services and many more ways to improve community care of those with loss of sight.

Faculty we currently work with:
Dr. Catherine Liu, Dr. Don Kikkawa, Dr. Eric Nudleman, Dr. Weldon Haw, and Dr. Shyamanga Borooah.
