Current Projects

Our research interests principally centre on the examination of the ocular surface and the tear film, particularly in contact lens wear, and ocular & systemic disease.


Current projects within the research unit include:

  • Ocular surface sensation

  • Inflammatory markers in the tear film

  • Measurement of tear meniscus height

  • Temperature behind contact lenses

  • The role of mucins in frictional forces on the ocular surface

  • Corneal staining

  • Use of dry eye drops

  • Investigating contact lens non-compliance
