Current Clinical Trials

+ Vision Correction

Lasik Clinical Trial

Do you rely on your glasses or contacts to see clearly? Carl Zeiss Meditec and Chu Vision Institute are conducting a research study on a laser to perform laser vision correction (i.e., LASIK) to correct nearsightedness and farsightedness with and without astigmatism. This laser has not been used in the U.S. and is considered investigational by the FDA.

You may qualify for this research study if:

  • You have nearsightedness or farsightedness with or without astigmatism
  • You are at least 18 years of age
  • You have had no previous eye surgery, significant trauma or infections in either of your eyes
  • You have a pair of glasses that are at least one year old
  • You are in good health

If you qualify for this research study, LASIK will be performed on both of your eyes at no cost to you.

+ Glaucoma


If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma and are currently taking up to three anti-glaucoma medications, you may be eligible to participate in a research study.

Dr. Ralph Chu is currently participating in a research study to evaluate a product called Travoprost Intraocular Implant for patients with glaucoma, designed to reduce eye pressure by delivering glaucoma medications slowly into your eye over time.
