Subjects wanted for contact lens trial

By Adrian Galbreth

Contact lens wearers are being sought for a research study of different contact lens solutions in the US.

Pacific University in Oregon wants healthy people over the age of 18 who wear contact lenses, reports the Forest Grove News Times.

The study, which will have a duration of nine weeks, will involve subjects using different contact lens solutions provided for them as they have eye and vision tests.

Subjects will not have to pay for the solutions and will be given $10 a week.

All the contact lens solutions being tested are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The College of Optometry at Pacific University was created in 1945 when the university teamed up with the North Pacific College of Optometry.

Its dean is Jennifer Smythe, who was both a student and a professor there before taking on her current position.

The college works "to promote excellence in vision and eye care through education, service and research".
