Eurolens Research

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.

 

 

Volunteers needed

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.

 

Current opportunities:

  • Current reusable (i.e. NOT daily disposable) contact lens wearers for a 3-visit study looking at the clinical performance of two daily disposable contact lenses (ref 649).
  • Daily disposable contact lens wearers (aged 18-45) for a contact lens comfort study (ref 639).
