In partnership with the Clinical Vision Research Center, faculty at the SUNY College of Optometry work with private, public and industry sponsors to conduct research in a variety of fields including for novel treatments, pre- and post-market investigations of products, and evaluating devices. For example, our contact lens research spans everything from studies examining patient preference and satisfaction to clinical trials designed to test novel materials or optical designs.

Past adult studies conducted through the CVRC haved included topics such as contact lenses, dry eye, advanced imaging technologies and presbyopia, but there are many other potential areas of interest for our doctors and faculty.

For the purposes of most studies, “adult” is defined as being 18 years of age or older, however each individual study has an eligible age range which may differ from this definition.
