Our Research

Overview

Welcome to the Centre for Eye Health (CFEH) Research Group at the University of New South Wales.

CFEH serves as a valuable resource for research. It enables researchers from various disciplines to investigate ocular conditions and develop management strategies for improved patient-management paradigms.

In addition, the Centre conducts comparisons and evaluations of various pieces of advanced equipment; develops standardised protocols to interrogate patient information; and develops a large patient database of various ocular conditions.

Uniquely offering a free service to people who are at-risk or suspected of early stage eye disease, CFEH is able to utilise clinical data to research more effective ways to save sight for more people.
