Eyes & Vision

Participate in Research is designed to connect potential volunteers with open research studies. We are looking for volunteers just like you to help answer important questions about the eyes and vision. This page lists eyes and vision studies that may apply to you or someone you know.

Active Studies

  • We are studying a vision condition called amblyopia, also called “lazy eye,” which is when someone has poor vision in one eye even when wearing glasses. To understand how vision work when someone has amblyopia, we are currently looking for healthy control participants to participate......

  • The COBRA study is exploring neurological, hemodynamic, and electrophysiological differences between Autistic and neurotypical individuals using vision as a model system. Participants will complete a clinical neurocognitive evaluation, 4 fMRI sessions, behavioral psychophysics experiments on a computer, and an EEG session. Depending on session length,......
