Hill Country Eye

Clinical Trials

To our patient community:

Hill Country Eye Center takes pride in offering the latest, most innovative technologies available to our patients. Many of these technologies were developed as a result of clinical trials that help Restivo Laser Vision and the ophthalmology community make advances in the treatment of eye disease.

Our selection of the clinical trials in which we participate is a careful process. These studies are governed by strict standards and are scrutinized by review boards to ensure patient safety remains our highest concern.

I have asked my team to post those clinical trials whose enrollment periods are currently open, in hopes that some of you may find participation in these studies a manageable and rewarding experience.

To find out if you are a candidate for any of our open studies, please contact our Study Coordinator Sheila Nardelli at [email protected] or call 512.528.1144.

Wishing you the best in health and vision,

Vincent A. Restivo, MD
