Research (IRD)


Dr. Lazar participates in clinical trials through his private practice located in West Los Angeles for a variety of ophthalmic conditions. Focusing on his efforts to contribute to the advancement of ophthalmology, he has developed a particular interest in clinical trials addressing inherited retinal diseases (IRDs). IRDs include a set of rare disorders caused by an inherited gene mutation. IRDs include but are not limited to disorders such as Retinitis Pigmentosa, Stargardt Disease, and Choroideremia.

Dr. Lazar has founded The IRDs Clinical Trials Network to facilitate the connection between patients and the appropriate clinical trials. If you are a patient or the guardian of a patient with an IRD and would like to be considered for enrollment, should a clinical trial become available in Dr. Lazar’s office, visit the IRDs Clinical Trials Network website below.
