Current projects include research into the heritability of strabismus and a clinical evaluation of chemodenervation (Botox therapy) versus standard surgery for the correction of strabismus. We are also participants in the phase I clinical trial of enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis type VI.
Our physicians are board-certified and subspecialty trained. Interpreters for many languages, a financial counselor, and a social worker are available to assist our patients.
