RELIEF: A Vision Preservation and Blindness Prevention Initiative

The RELIEF initiative is an online learning tool for clinicians and patients interested in the management of DR, AMD and RVO. By compiling up-to-date information on pivotal and current clinical trials for DR, AMD and RVO, we aim to provide users with a convenient resource that improves clinical outcomes and quality of life for patients. Our goal is to empower healthcare providers to personalize therapy using evidence-based approaches through their participation in our online offerings and exploration of the Fellow and Resident Toolkit. Our additional Clinical and Patient Toolkits in each disease state are also handy resources that educate clinicians and patients about their disease and empowers patients to engage in their healthcare decisions.

Thank you for visiting our website. Please explore the clinical trials, infographic highlights and HD visual learning links for cutting-edge information on current and emerging treatments for DR, AMD and RVO.
