Our research focuses on a number of key areas in optometry and vision science, with internationally recognised research programs:
We have a strong record of effective engagement with government and regulatory bodies, clinical practitioners and community groups and the QUT Optometry Clinic, through which we have achieved wide-ranging impact and translation of our research outcomes.
Anterior Eye and Ocular Surface Laboratory
The Anterior Eye and Ocular Surface Laboratory is dedicated to understanding factors that affect the health of the anterior eye and ocular surface and how risk factors can be reduced and treatments developed.Learn more about this laboratory
Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory
The primary research objectives of the Contact Lens and Visual Optics 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.Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory
Melanopsin Photoreception and Visual Science Research Laboratory
The Melanopsin Photoreception and Visual Science Research Laboratory is a leading international site for the basic science and clinical investigation of human melanopsin function.Learn more about this laboratory
Optics, Myopia and Binocular Vision Laboratory
The Optics, Myopia and Binocular Vision Laboratory is dedicated to understanding the optics of the eye and the causes, visual function and treatments related to myopia, binocular vision problems and amblyopia.Learn more about this laboratory
Theoretical and Practical Vision Laboratory
The Theoretical and Practical Vision Laboratory uses statistics, modelling and experimentation to improve clinical assessment of the visual system.Learn more about this laboratory
