No cost dry eye is available for qualified participants

Do you have dry eye? JBR Clinical Research is conducting a clinical research study of an investigational insert given to participants that have dry eye.

Why participate in a clinical research study?

Clinical studies allow medications to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Clinical studies are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study, time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible.

What to expect.

This study is for individuals experiencing dry eye. The investigational product is an insert put into your tear duct that delivers medication to the surface of the eye. This will be administered at no cost to you. If eligible to participate, you will be asked to come to the clinic for a screening visit, administration visit, and six or more follow-up visits. These visits take place over the course of 16 or more weeks. Labs are performed at a separate facility, and you will be asked to travel there to complete each visit. You will be compensated for time and travel.

In order to be considered for the dry eye study, please fill out the form below or call 801-261-2000.

What causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye disease is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. Tears can be inadequate and unstable for many reasons. For example, dry eyes may occur if you don’t produce enough tears or if you produce poor-quality tears. This tear instability leads to inflammation and damage of the eye’s surface.

Dry eyes feel uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, your eyes may sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours

What are the Symptoms of Dry Eye?

Signs and symptoms, which usually affect both eyes, may include:

  • A stinging, burning or scratchy sensation in your eyes
  • Stringy mucus in or around your eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Eye redness
  • A sensation of having something in your eyes
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Difficulty with nighttime driving
  • Watery eyes, which is the body’s response to the irritation of dry eyes
  • Blurred vision or eye fatigue
