Landfall Eye Associates Seeks Volunteers with Dry Macular Degeneration (AMD) for Clinical Study
National Study Seeks to Improve Reading for Sufferers with AMD
Landfall Eye Associates is looking for volunteers diagnosed with dry macular degeneration to participate in a clinical study to determine if repetitive stimulation of the preferred retinal locus, the area near the central blind spot used to focus on words, letter, and object, will help in their ability to read.
The study will include two patients groups. One group of patients will use a medical device that looks like a computer screen and will display bright objects to stimulate the preferred retinal locus. Participants must be able to perform the therapy twice daily for about 40 to 50 minutes each day, six times per week. The therapy will be performed in the participantís home for approximately three months. The other group- the control group- will not use the medical device or perform therapy. Participants will be randomly assigned to a group. If the trial study shows the treatment with the medical device is effective, the participants who did not perform the therapy will be offered the opportunity to do so at a later date at no charge.
Volunteers will be reimbursed to cover study related transportation costs. Approximately four visits will be required of all participants.
Landfall Eye Associates is participating in this multicenter national study sponsored by NovaVison, Inc., headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla. For more information about the study, contact Kathy McDermott at 910-256-6364 or Landfalleye@aol.com
