Dr. Fishman is also actively involved in several key clinical research projects focusing on new medication trials to improve patient care and has served as a clinical investigator for leading pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Alcon and Allergan. He has been invited to lecture about his clinical experience with the Crystalens implant for the manufacturer, Eyeonics.
