Have you been diagnosed with glaucoma? Are you a glaucoma suspect? If so, we are looking for volunteers 7 years and older to participate in a research study at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The goal of this study is to identify the microscopic changes that take place in the glaucomatous retina, to ultimately develop better diagnostic methods and improve the management of this disease.
This study consists of behavioral tests of your vision, high-resolution imaging of your retina, and clinical tests of your vision. Average time required is two 3-hour sessions.
As it is a research study only, there is no direct clinical benefit to you for participating. You will be paid for your participation (children will be paid in the form of a Barnes & Noble or Best Buy gift card) and travel will be reimbursed according to MCW travel reimbursement guidelines.
Contact Phyllis Summerfelt or Mara Goldberg at 414-955-AOIP (2647) or email with questions or to set up an appointment.
