Have you been diagnosed with ocular albinism? If so, we are looking for volunteers 7 years and older to participate in a research study at the Medical College of Wisconsin. We are also looking for siblings or parents of ocular albinism patients. The goal of this research is to better understand how ocular albinism affects the organization of the retina.
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.
