Binocular-balanced movie viewing: a treatment for amblyopia (“lazy eye”)

We are looking for adults and children aged 5 years and older with ambyopia (“lazy eye”) to trial binocular balanced movie viewing on a Nintendo device.

Presbyopia could be avoidable!

Are you in your early 20s or 40s with 20/20 vision? This study aims to investigate the mechanism that drives presbyopia, the normal age-related loss of near-focussing ability.

Lazy eye research – aniseikonia

Did you wear glasses and an eye patch as a child? We need page aged 7 to 60 with a difference in prescription between their two eyes to participate in this research into how visual information is combined and processed in aniseikonia.

Rapid quantification of oculomotor deficits

We’re looking for people with and without strabismus, colloquially called a “lazy eye” or “childhood squint”, to try out some new computer-based tests we’ve developed.
