I am doing a clinical study of contact lenses for a major contact lens manufacturer and I need to enroll eight people aged 12-35 who have never worn contact lenses before to be part of the study. You need to meet the age requirement, be near sighted, be able to wear the lenses for 8 hours a day for at least 5 days of the week and be able to come to my office for 3 follow up visits after the initial eval and training.
You will be paid for your time and will receive all lenses to wear for the month of the study. The gist of the study is to see how long it takes me to fit and you to learn to insert and remove 1 of 4 different types of already available contact lenses. You may also be asked to answer questions about comfort and ease of use.
If you are interested (or have children who want contact lenses) this is a great opportunity to be fit (for free!). I need 8 patients enrolled by 12/5 so there is a bit of a time crunch here. Let me know right away if you are interested. My office is in Damariscotta. thanks!
