Glossary of Terms


The research center is housed within West Texas Retina Consultants. There are five rooms for vision testing and diagnostic tests. There are two rooms that are exactly 20 ft long with ETDRS charts. ETDRS stands for Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study. These charts are used to test visual acuity. Each room has a slit lamp that is used to view the front and back areas of the eye at a magnified view.

Upon the requirements by the clinical trial sponsors, lab work, vital signs, and EKGs will be performed. These tests may or may not be required at every visit.

In order to verify that all information is up to the standards with the clinical trial sponsors, a monitor visits the facility every day to go through charts.
