Do You Have Dry Eyes?
  • Do your eyes feel gritty or sandy?

  • Do your eyes water so that you have to wipe away excess tears?

  • Are your eyes red and itchy?

If you suffer from any of these symptoms,  you may be a candidate to participate in an upcoming Dry Eye study. 


Our study subjects are compensated for their participation and contribute to the development of new therapies for dry eye.  If you would like to learn more, please contact Sarah Wing, RN, our Research Coordinator.

Our practice regularly conducts research on new treatments for ocular surface diseases.


Dr. Lonsdale and Dr. Avery have worked with Ophthalmic Research Associates of Andover, Massachusetts for over fifteen years.  They have participated in FDA trials that have led to the development of new medications for the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis and dry eye.
