The

Run your trial with faster execution and higher quality

Why the Vial Ophthalmology CRO?

Streamlined trial startup, more predictable patient recruitment, and higher quality data.

Vial understands that ophthalmology is an incredibly complex space, that’s why we have in-house ophthalmologists with decades of combined experience across anterior and posterior segments.

Our advisors’ experience in every ophthalmologic indication, combined with a network of top-tier ophthalmologists, allow for a fully integrated Ophthalmology CRO that offers faster trial startup, superior patient recruitment, and better quality data.

The Vial Ophthalmology CRO doesn’t just stop at first rate advisors and sites, Vial has incorporated technology throughout every step of the study process. Most notably VialConnect, a CTMS designed specifically for ophthalmology clinics and staff.
