The Contact Lens and Visual Optics Laboratory (CLVOL) is located within the School of Optometry and Vision Science. It is part of the Vision Improvement Domain of QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI). The primary research objectives of the laboratory are to better understand vision, the visual optics of contact lenses and the processes underlying the development of refractive errors.

The laboratory has a sophisticated range of measurement and analysis techniques. These include methods to investigate the shape of the cornea, the optical characteristics of the eye, visual performance of contact lenses and the biometric properties of the eye.
