Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

Clinical and Translational Research Studies at the Eye Institute

Our mission is to improve, restore, and preserve sight. Research is an integral part of this mission. In fact, since its opening in 1976, the Eye Institute at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin has been committed to advancing our ability to provide excellent clinical and surgical care through investing in research. From developing novel surgical techniques, to participating in national clinical trials to test new drugs, to advancing state-of-the art imaging tools to study retinal disease, we remain at the forefront of vision research.
