Lens trial

Cardiff University’s School of Optometry and Vision Sciences are looking for volunteers to take part in a new spectacle lens trial in association with the world leader in ophthalmic solutions – Essilor International. All volunteers who take part in the trial will be eligible for a free pair of spectacles from our Eye Clinic.*

The trial will involve patients wearing a frame with three different types of lenses, each for a period of around two weeks, and providing questionnaire responses as to how they felt the lenses performed. Participants have to be over the age of eighteen, be a regular driver who wear glasses to drive, and at the end of the study, volunteers get to keep their favoured pair of lenses and a standard frame for no cost.

Lens trial prerequisites

  • Over 18 years old
  • A regular motor vehicle driver who wears glasses to drive
  • Have an up to date prescription (one can be provided if you haven’t got one)
  • Able to visit our eye clinic five times during the trial (there will be five lenses to trial and each lens will be trialled for a period of 2 weeks).
  • Available to take part in February 2018.

If you meet the above criteria and would like to take part in this exciting new trial, with the opportunity to bag yourself a brand new pair of spectacles, please email or telephone our Eye Clinic on:
