Are you aged 45 to 55 years and have trouble reading up close without glasses?

Published: 23 Nov 2021

Researchers at UNSW are conducting a project to find out if a novel eye drop treatment (UNR844) is safe and effective, and if so, what is the best dose to help improve the near vision of people with presbyopia (an age related condition where the eyes are no longer able to focus on near objects).

Would the research be a good fit for me?

This study might be a good fit for you if you:

  • Are 45 to 55 years of age (inclusive) who are phakic (eye lens has not been removed, for example due to cataracts)
  • Meet the required vision criteria e.g. good distance vision (with spectacles if required)

What would happen if I took part in the research study?

If you decide to take part you would be asked to attend monthly clinic visits over approximately 1 year, which may include vision and eye examinations, physical examinations, questionnaires, blood and urine sample.  You will also be asked to complete an electronic diary and electronic vision testing at home in between visits.

You will be compensated for any reasonable travel and refreshment costs associated with attending the research study visits.
