Clinical Trials - Can You Help?

Clinical trials - recruiting subjects

The ADP Consultancy conducts clinical trials for the purpose of increasing our knowledge in the field of eye care.  We hope to have a trial under way soon looking at an in-practice treatment for contact lens discomfort, if you think you would like to find out more about how you might help, or may be intrested in future trials and live within traveling distance of Rhyl, Denbighshire or Widnes, Cheshire please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Contact Lens Discomfort Trial - In-Practice Treatment

We are looking for subjects who find their contact lenses are not as comfortable as they would like, especially at the end of the day. The trial does not involve changing lenses or solutions but rather treating the eye's vital meibomian glands that secrete protective oils into the tears. The object of the clinical trial is to determine if, and for how long, a one-off in-practice treatment reduces contact lens discomfort. If you would like to know more about this trial please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Made-to-Order Multifocal Contact Lens Trial

Would a 'tailor made' made-to-order multifocal lens perfor better than the equivalant widely prescribed off-the-shelf alternative? A few statistically signifianct differences were found for visual acuity and subjective vision and the overall performance of 'tailor made' lens was much better than off-the-shelf alternative. These aspects could be leveraged in a marketing campaign among contact lens practices seeking to have better overall success with multifocal soft conact lenses. 08/01/2017 Update: This trial has now completed and closed with report issued to sponsor. 

Multi-Focal Contact Lens Trial (two separate trials)

We are looking for subjects who are over 42 and require different prescriptions for distance and near, bifocal/varifocal glasses, two pairs of glasses, removes distance glasses to read, glasses over contact lenses to read or monovision contact lenses. The object of the clinical trial is to determine if vision with contact lenses changes over a time period. Subjects who complete the clinical trial and are successful with the sponsor's lenses will be offered 3 months lenses free-of-charge (approx value £150.00). The subjects would be prescribed one or two pairs of lenses to wear for a week, normally three to four practice visits will be required. 05/05/2017 Update: Both of these trials has now completed and closed with report issued to sponsor.  

Contact Lens Discomfort Trial

We are looking for subjects who find their contact lenses are not as comfortable as they would like, especially at the end of the day. The trial does not involve changing lenses or solutions but rather using a means to retain more tears on the eye surface. the object of the clinical trial is to determine if retaining more tears on the eye surface reduces contact lens discomfort. Subjects who complete the clinical trial will be given £100.00 practice credit. 23/12/2016 Update: This trial has now completed and closed. Interim results have been published. If you are interested in the interim results and what it may mean to you as a Contact Lens wearer email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 24/03/2017 Update: This trial has now completed and closed with report issued to sponsor. A clinical trials poster was presented at the BCLA CC in 2017.

The subjects will wear both a toric and a spherical lens on two different occasions with the aim of determining if their is a objective and/or subjective visual benefit to correcting small cyls with toric lenses. Subjects who complete the trial will be offered £50 payment and £50 practice credit. For further information email This email address is being protected from spambots.
