Retina Research Center

Retina Research Center (RRC) was founded by Brian Berger, M.D. in 1999 as a freestanding research facility located adjacent to our central Austin office.  RRC conducts clinical trials evaluating drug therapies and drug delivery devices for a variety of retinal diseases including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions and uveitis.  We also collaborate with other local research sites to perform retinal exams for clinical trials evaluating systemic medications.  We strive to ensure that every patient is an optimal fit for a particular clinical trial and afforded unique, individualized care.   

Under the direction of Dr. Brian Berger, Dr. Chirag Jhaveri,  Dr. Saradha Chexal, and Dr. Gowtham Jonna, RRC enrolls patients from an extensive patient base referred by many private practices within Austin and the surrounding areas. Our clinical research coordinators and photographers are friendly, knowledgeable, certified, and look forward to helping you and your family receive the latest treatments for retinal diseases.

We are located adjacent to our central Austin clinic at 3705 Medical Parkway, Suite 420, Austin, TX 78705. Call us at: 512-279-1251 or email:
