13 Clinical Trials Summary

This chapter contains a brief summary of some of the most important trials relevant for general ophthalmic practice. It is current at the time of writing and represents the consensus opinion of the authors. It is neither exhaustive nor definitive and should be used only as a supplement to your own study.

The summaries presented are purposefully brief and neglect all the detailed analysis present in the published trials. Nevertheless, the conclusions presented below are commonly the level of detail that a candidate may be asked during an ophthalmology training exit examination. Important caveats and considerations, particularly inclusion criteria, which impacts applicability, have been listed where needed.
