Get to know us and what we do.
VRC is a research company – a group of research optometrists, technicians, and clinical coordinators that work with companies that make contact lenses.
We’re committed to safely testing new contact lens materials and designs to bring more comfort, longer wearing times and improve the quality of vision for contact lens wearers. We believe strongly in protecting our participants, so an Independent Review Board (IRB) reviews all of our studies. The IRB, along with the sponsoring company and clinical staff, ensure your safety and rights.
Helping bring new products to the public
The VRC just celebrated 10 years of collaboration with the world’s leading manufacturer of contact lenses in the development of new contact lenses. Since 2014, 5 new products that were first tested in the VRC research facilities were approved for use by the general public.
That’s why your participation is so important – it contributes to the development of future contact lens designs and materials.
