Sight loss and eye conditions
Can you help to prioritise research about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sight loss and eye conditions?
The Sight Loss and Vision Survey will – for the first time – identify the most pressing unanswered questions from patients, carers and eye health professionals about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sight loss and eye conditions. This will ensure that future research can be prioritised according to the needs of patients, carers and eye health professionals.
This exciting initiative will be overseen by The James Lind Alliance, a non-profit making organisation funded by the National Institute for Health Research, ensuring the exercise produces an unbiased result, with equal weighting given to the views of the different participating groups. So whether your interest is personal or professional, whether you are concerned about eye conditions relating to diabetes your opinions will count.
To learn more about this initiative visit www.sightlosspsp.org.uk where you’ll find the online survey, how to download and post/fax a form, answer questions on the phone, or request alternative formats such as Braille or audio. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, so please take this opportunity to change the future of eye research. The survey closes on July 31st 2012.
