How you can help
Our school is at the forefront of research in the fields of optometry and vision science.
You can participate in these studies - check out current research participation opportunities below.
New spectacle lenses for myopia control: ocular effects
The study investigates the effect of short-term wear of new spectacle lens designs on the eye.
The lenses are designed to reduce myopia progression in children.
Is resistance training beneficial to eye health?
Researchers are collaborating on a project to investigate the effect of resistance training on eye health. If you're over 55 and have good eye health, why not take part in this study?
Lazy eye research
Did you wear glasses and an eye patch as a child? We need people age 7 to 60 with a difference in prescription between two eyes.
Behavioural testing of size illusions
If you have normal or corrected-to-normal vision, we would like to invite you to take part in a research project investigating how you see the world.
Experience 3D technology and eye-tracking
We want to test if we can combine 3D technology and eye-tracking to measure how your eyes move and work together.
Rapid quantification of oculomotor deficits
In this study we’re looking for children and adults with strabismus, colloquially called a “lazy eye” or “childhood squint”, to try out some new computer-based tests that we’ve developed.
The effect of blur on eye movements
We are investigating the role that blur plays in determining how your eyes move to help us improve the way we measure people's vision.
Ocular tissue stretch in myopia
If you are short-sighted, you are invited to participate in our study investigating the relationship between retinal tissue stretch and short-sightedness.
Presbyopia could be avoidable!
Are you in your early 20s or 40s with 20/20 vision? This study aims to investigate the mechanism that drives presbyopia, the normal age related loss of near-focusing ability.
