We’re launching an online survey to help demonstrate the personal impact of sight loss. We’re inviting everyone affected by sight loss or an eye condition – either personally or indirectly via someone they care for – to participate in the survey and to strengthen the case for urgently needed eye research funding.

Sight loss costs the UK over £28 billion each year, yet only 1% of funding for public services is spent on eye research. This equates to just £20 for each person living with sight loss.

Yet despite the evidence, the scale of this growing health challenge is not being taken seriously. We need the input of those affected by sight loss to demonstrate its impact and to secure more funding for pioneering eye research.

How to get involved

We’d love you to take part in a short 20 minute interview or online survey, sharing information and answering questions on how living with sight loss or an eye condition impacts on your life.

Please fill in the following short questionnaire, registering your interest in taking part in our survey. This should take less than five minutes. When the full survey takes place in early 2020, you will be contacted and invited to take part in a 20 minute online survey. The survey can also be done over the phone if this better suits your access needs.

Or alternatively you can phone us on 020  7264 3900 and we can assist you with this signing up process.

We also are in the process of printing out promotional postcards to give out in ophthalmology clinics, if you would like us to send you these please contact annamarie@fightforsight.org.uk.
