Volunteers Sought for Retinal Study

By Alex Stackpole on 3/28/2018

The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, located at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division St., Derby, is seeking volunteers for a study on retinopathy.

The study open to anyone over 18 years of age who has not had an eye exam for a year. Further eligibility will be assessed before the eye screening.

Participants will have a free eye exam in which images of their eyes are taken and an eye specialist reviews the images for any signs of diseases or conditions, specifically retinopathy, which usually does not have any symptoms. Retinopathy is a common eye disease in the United States and is a leading cause of blindness. People with certain conditions are at risk for developing retinopathy and should be screened every year.

To see if you qualify or for more information, contact Aisha Khan at 203-732-1265 ext: 223 or akhan@griffinhealth.org.
