Recruitment of contact lens wearers is underway for a randomised controlled trial being conducted at University of New South Wales.
The trial aims to:
- Reduce the dropout rate,
- Improve contact lens wearer satisfaction,
- Improve wearers’ hygiene compliance, and
- Help new contact lens wearers along the complex wearing journey.
the six-month trial is ideal for new lens wearers at risk of dropout and also existing wearers who may need a lens hygiene refresher
Led by Associate Professor Nicole Carnt and her team of researchers, the six-month trial is ideal for new lens wearers at risk of dropout and also existing wearers who may need a lens hygiene refresher.
The study consists of three sets of questionnaires. Text message intervention will be delivered regularly to the test group and, after the trial is complete, each participant will receive a AU$40 e-gift card.
To attract participants, practitioners are being asked to distribute flyers to their current contact lens wearers, both full-and part-time.
Contact lens wearers are then able to enrol themselves online by scanning a QR code.
If you can support fellow optometrist and PhD candidate, Adam Samuels by recruiting contact lens wearers for the trial, please contact (AUS) 0404 658 330 or [email protected] to receive a free recruitment package comprising 50 printed flyers and a poster for your practice.
