Clinical Trials Offer Variety of Novel Treatments

The Pediatric Ophthalmology Clinical Research Program is led by Faruk H. Örge, MD and co-investigators Başak Can, MD, Maryo C Kohen MD, and Adam Peıffer, OD, MS. The UH Eye Institute and CWRU Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences has long been part of the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG) of studies which are funded by the National Eye Institute and managed by the Jaeb Center for Health Research. The PEDIG studies evaluate treatment and management options for amblyopia, strabismus, convergence insufficiency and other pediatric eye conditions. This group has also been actively involved in sponsored studies evaluating pediatric aphakia and cataract surgery, ocular imaging, retinopathy of prematurity, strabismus and visual pathway tumors.
