The UAB School of Optometry Clinical Eye Research Facility (CERF) conducts innovative research in areas ranging from dry eye, to contact lenses, to low vision, to pediatric eye problems. 


CERF is in constant need of participants for different research studies. We are presently looking for subjects who are 19 years or older to enroll in a database for notification of current and future studies. The database will only consist of basic demographics, contact information, eye health history, and symptoms of eye discomfort. The questionnaire can be conducted in person or via telephone and will take approximately 10 minutes. There is no compensation for being included in the database, though future studies may include reimbursement.  

Minimum Eligibility Requirements:
-          19 years old or older
-          Willing to respond to questionnaires
-          Interesting in being contacted about future studies.
