Vision Research


The Institute for Vision Research was founded by Drs. Ali and Selenow in 1990. Our state-of-the-art research facility develops diagnostic equipment for contact lens fittings, spearheads lens research and development, and runs clinical trials of new designs and materials for contact lenses and eyeglasses. 

Our involvement in such research has kept us at the forefront of technological innovations, enabling us to provide advanced services to our patients well before most other doctors. Our newly renovated research facility is currently performing clinical trials for pre-market products such as astigmatic contact lenses, new contact lens materials, and progressive bifocal glasses.
