Research & Clinical Trials

We are the only retina practice in Colorado providing specialized coverage in ocular oncology, uveitis, and inherited retinal disease (IRD). Our sub-specialists are the tertiary referral center for patients with complex auto-immune and infectious ocular conditions, intraocular tumors/cancer, and genetic disorders.
