Offering a full clinical research service to contact lens and other ophthalmic industries
Established in 1990, Eurolens Research has been delivering a full clinical research service to industry for almost 30 years.
Specialising in contact lens and ocular surface clinical studies, we are involved in key design and material studies, and offer expertise in novel approaches to clinical examinations, image processing and assessment of the inflammatory status of the ocular surface.
Being fully integrated within a world-class university gives us access to scientists from multiple disciplines, interesting collaborative opportunities and the latest research tools, and allows us to offer postgraduate research opportunities.
Volunteer as a participant in a clinical study and be compensated for your time.
Our volunteers are very important to us – without them our research would not be possible.
Each year, we run 20-30 clinical studies for the global ophthalmic industry and need volunteers on a regular basis. We are always keen to hear from people that would like to get involved, particularly contact lens wearers.
Eurolens Research is OPEN and our team is working, some at home and some at the Carys Bannister Building. Our emails to firstname.lastname@example.org are being regularly checked during standard office hours, and will be answered quickly. We may not always be able to answer our main phone (0161 306 2132).
WE ARE RECRUITING FOR STUDIES. We may be unable to start you on a study immediately due to the current coronavirus pandemic, but would still like to hear from you.
- Spectacle wearers (aged 18-40) required for a study comparing the experience of wearing a face mask with spectacles and contact lenses (ref 688).
[Please note: Because of the current relevance of the topic of this research, this study has been given full approval to continue during periods of lockdown, with appropriate safety measures in place. If you are interested in getting involved, please get in touch. If you are suitable to take part, you can chose to start the study as soon as possible, or wait until ‘lockdown’ restrictions have lifted]
