Research and teaching
In addition to providing access to advanced eye imaging and assessment services, Centre for Eye Health is a valuable resource for research and teaching.
The information we gather from our clients will enable researchers from various disciplines to investigate ocular conditions and develop management strategies for improved patient management. It will also enable us to make important comparisons and evaluations of various pieces of advanced eye imaging equipment, develop evidence-based clinical protocols for a range of eye conditions and ensure that future and current eye-care practitioners have access to up-to-date training.
Before we can use your information for research or teaching purposes, we need your permission.
Confidentiality and Disclosure of Information. Any information that we gather from your appointment at CFEH, that can be identified with you, will remain confidential and will not be disclosed, except as required by law, to yourself or to your consulting practitioner when requested.
