The Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory (CLVOL) is located within the School of Optometry and Vision Science. It is part of QUT’s Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI). The primary research objectives of the laboratory are to better understand vision, the optics of the eye, optical corrections of the eye and the processes underlying the regulation of eye growth. The laboratory has a sophisticated range of measurement and analysis techniques. These include methods to investigate the shape of the cornea, the optical characteristics of the eye, visual performance of contact lenses and the biometric properties of the eye.
The CLVOL research team is multidisciplinary, with backgrounds including optometry and vision science, ophthalmology, physics, optical and mechanical engineering, software development and signal processing.
The diverse range of scientific backgrounds serves the research conducted at CLVOL very well. Research falls under four main themes: contact lenses, visual optics, imaging, and myopia research.
Members of CLVOL are regularly involved with national and international conferences, clinical research studies, and emerging ophthalmic technologies. Explore recent news and events.
