Research participation


Take part in our research and help us further our knowledge to improve patients' lives.

We are frequently looking for members of the public to help with our research and there are a number of ways you can get involved.


Acute eye care study

We are looking to recruit research participants who have presented to A&E, optometrists, GPs or pharmacists with urgent eye-related issues.

To be included in this study you must have (or have had) an urgent eye care problem and be able to complete the research questionnaires with a researcher in English or Welsh. This study is also for healthcare staff participants, eg. staff working directly with patients recruited as participants.

The Neurological Vision Loss database

In association with the School of Psychology, we are looking for research participants for studies of Neurological Vision Loss (NVL). Not only do we recruit people with neurological vision loss, but we also recruit healthy, normal-sighted individuals to act as comparisons with those who have vision loss. As long as you are aged above 18, you are eligible to sign up to our NVL database.

Download our information sheet for more detail about the database. If you are interested in becoming a paid participant, please complete our online questionnaire.
