Information About Study

This study is intended for people who have signs and symptoms of Atopic Keratoconjunctivitis (AKC). Common symptoms of AKC are red, burning or itchy eyes and excessive tearing or sensitivity to light.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate how effective subcutaneous injections or “shots” (applied under the skin) of an investigational drug are compared to placebo (drug without the active ingredient) for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of AKC.

Key Inclusion Criteria

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a history or diagnosis of AKC or atopic dermatitis (eczema)

Key Exclusion Criteria

  • No contact lenses within 48 hours of the study and for the duration of the study
  • Have had any previous exposure to Dupixent®

Length and Compensation
This study includes 4 visits (3-4 hours long each) over the course of 6 weeks and if you complete all 4 visits you will be compensated $700 for your time. If you do not qualify or complete all 4 visits, you will be paid for each visit that you come into the office for. A check will be mailed 4-6 weeks after your last visit is completed.

Information About Study
This study is intended for people who have the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. Common symptoms include eye dryness, eye discomfort, visual disturbance, damage to the surface of the eye, burning, stinging, itching, grittiness, scratchiness and tired eye sensation. Symptoms can affect one or both eyes and may be more bothersome later in the day or worsened by environmental factors like wind or air-conditioning.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate how effective and safe an investigational eye drop is compared to a vehicle (solution without the active ingredient) eye drop, and how well it will work to treat the signs and symptoms of Dry Eye Disease. This study will further investigate the connection between dry eye and reading ability, and whether the investigational eyedrop may have a positive impact on reading ability.

Key Inclusion Criteria

  • Be at least 18 years
  • Have history of dry eye for at least 6 months.

Key Exclusion Criteria

  • No contact lenses within 90 days of the study and for the duration of the study.
  • Any ocular surgery or ocular procedures within 6 months of Visit 1.

Length and Compensation
This study includes 8 visits (3-4 hours each) over the course of 3 months and if you complete all 8 visits you will be compensated $850 for your time. If you do not qualify or complete all 8 visits, you will be paid for each visit that you come into the office for. A check will be mailed 4-6 weeks after your last visit is completed.

Information About Study
This study is intended for people with blepharitis. Blepharitis is a common, chronic condition that can cause eyelid inflammation as well as lid redness, lid itching and eye irritation. Many people with blepharitis may also experience scales on their lashes and debris-like dandruff, especially in the morning. In 45% of cases, this condition also presents with demodex, which are tiny mites that live along the lids. If left untreated, these mites can thrive and cause increased irritation and inflammation and overall lid discomfort.

This new research study is to evaluate how effective an investigational eyedrop is at relieving symptoms associated with blepharitis. If you are experiencing the symptoms described below, we invite you to participate.

  • Debris, lash scales and dandruff-like flakes on eyelashes
  • Eyelid redness
  • Eyelid irritation
  • Discomfort along edge of eyelids
  • Brittle/loss of eyelashes
  • Misdirected eyelashes

Key Inclusion Criteria

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have history of blepharitis.

Key Exclusion Criteria

  • No contact lenses within 7 days of the study and for the duration of the study.
  • No artificial eyelashes within 7 days of the study and for the duration of the study.
  • No participation in other research studies within 30 days of Visit 1.

Length and Compensation
This study includes six visits (2-4 hours long each) over the course of 6 months and if you complete all 6 visits you will be compensated $600 for your time. If you do not complete all 6 visits, you will be paid $100 per visit. A check will be mailed 2-4 weeks after your last visit is completed.

Information About Study
The investigational device in this study is called a “canalicular plug”, which will be inserted in the corner of your eye, where your tears drain. The plug works by changing how your eye retains tears to prevent your eye from becoming dry. It is made by a company called Visant and it is called the Visant Medical Canalicular Plug.

The purpose of this study is to collect data (information) and to determine whether the investigational device is as safe and effective as a similar, FDA-approved, device. Some of the measurements, signs, and symptoms of dry eye will be recorded and compared to the measurements, signs, and symptoms recorded for a comparable FDA-approved device called the Oasis Form Fit plug (referred to in this form as the Oasis plug). The comparable device, the Oasis Form Fit plug, will be used similarly to plug your canaliculi to help relieve symptoms of dry eye.

The study includes six visits that will last 2 to 4 hours. If you agree to participate, you will attend an initial screening visit to make sure you qualify for the study, and you can ask the medical doctor any questions you may have. During this visit, you will be asked questions about your demographics (i.e. gender, age, race) and medical history and you will undergo routine eye assessment exams. If you are eligible to continue, you will be asked to return for 5 additional visits. At the second visit, you will have the plug inserted into both eyes by the medical doctor. Numbing eye drops will be used to minimize discomfort. The remaining 4 visits will be to assess your dry eye symptoms, and safety assessment of the plug you had inserted at visit 2. Routine eye assessment exams will be performed at each visit. At the last visit, the medical doctor will make sure the plug is removed by flushing saline through your tear canal.

Length and Compensation
This study includes 3 visits (2 visits will take 5 hours and 1 visit will take 6 hours) over the course of approximately 1 month and if you complete all 3 visits you will be compensated $600 for your time. If you do not qualify or complete all 3 visits, you will be paid for each visit that you come into the office for. A check will be mailed 4-6 weeks after your last visit is completed.
