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.

In late 2011 the Centre was selected as the site for a 1.1M research project, funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC).

The project involves a multi-disciplinary team of experts from optometry, ophthalmology, visual science and public health, and will utimately lead to more cohesive patient management, with an improvement in the quality of life for patients and a reduction of the the economic burden of eye disease nationally.
