I am confused since it was previously stated that TUG was being performed at the eye center in Long Beach, CA.
Dr. Donald Schwartz did not say that. He said he had done four small studies from 2009 to 2014 at the Long Beach Eye location with an IRB oversight. Since then TUG has been used from 2018 to present in Mumbai, India by Dr. Ramesh C. Shah.

Can patients receive the TUG therapy at the Long Beach clinic at the present time?
No. See answer to next question below.
Could you please clarify the availability and location of receiving TUG therapy.
Currently it is only available in Mumbai, India through Dr. Ramesh C. Shah. It is not available in Long Beach, CA right now, but Dr. Donald Schwartz is seeking to raise funding for a clinical trial which he hopes to conduct at the location in Long Beach, CA.
With luck, it will be available in Long Beach, CA, in the near future -- only in the context of a clinical trial. It will possibly be more widely available in approximately two years, depending on fund raising and regulatory approvals.
Dr. Schwartz may further clarify; the above is my understanding.
