What is a Clinical Trial?

A clinical trial (also known as a study) is an investigation conducted in humans which aims to find out, or confirm, how a product or technique works, and/or its safety. At the Clinical Research and Trials Centre, we conduct clinical trials involving testing of eye-related products and techniques. These may include:

  • Contact lenses
  • Spectacles
  • New Instruments and Techniques
  • Therapeutic drugs

These trials, an integral part of BHVI’s research activities to improve eye care, rely heavily on the invaluable contributions of volunteer participants. Without our volunteers, research into new and improved methods of vision correction would not be possible.

Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteers receive free contact lenses and solutions (or other vision correction/eye care products used in the trial) for the duration of the trial.

Over 1,000 volunteers participate in our clinical trials every year. We are always looking for volunteers to take part and join us in developing the next generation of vision correction products.

Clinic Details

We have two Clinical Research and Trials Centres in Australia. One is based, on campus , at UNSW in Randwick, the other is in the South Western Sydney suburb of Macarthur.
