Integrated Clinical Research was founded in 2004. Drs Patel and Lee believe in the advancement of retina research to preserve the vision of individuals with potential visual loss.

There have been many studies conducted that have saved the vision of individuals that would have not received the treatments otherwise. Current studies include Wet and Dry Macular Degeneration, Central and Branch Retinal Vein Occlusions, Diabetic Macular Edema, Uveitis.

The research team takes pride in their work and devotes hours to ensure that patients have access to the most advanced studies and state of the art equipment. They have attended many research seminars around the country to learn more about the newest advancements.

Currently they are the top enroller in two Eyetech trials and in the top percentage for vein occlusions and AMD trials. Their motto is, "To Provide Better Patient Care Through Science and Research."
