Macular Edema clinical trials at UC Davis
1 research study open to eligible people
A Study of Experimental Treatment With Micropulse for Diabetic Macular Edema (build-up of fluid in the eye)
“This study will test the effect of using the subthreshold micropulse diode laser (SML).”
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes and diabetic macular edema (DME) is one of the most common causes of vision loss in diabetes. The purpose of this study is to determine if early intervention with micropulse laser treatment in eyes with good visual acuity (20/32 or better) will improve or stabilize vision loss due to the complications of diabetic macular edema.
Our lead scientists for Macular Edema research studies include Glenn Yiu, MD, PhD.
