Hi everyone,

I’m a researcher working on behalf of an important UK industry body. As a part of a research project on sight tests, we’re hoping to speak to visually impaired people in the UK.

We’d speak for about 30-40 minutes over the phone, and you would receive a financial incentive to thank you for your valuable time. If you’re interested or know someone who may be, please do not hesitate to message me or email at kenziezimmer@wacomms.co.uk

Thank you so much!

    Hi @kenziewacomms. Thanks for sharing your research opportunity with us.

    I am just wondering, could you please define visually impaired? I am thinking it could help people who are potentially interested in this opportunity  :)

    Hi all, 

    This research opportunity is still available!

    It is open to individuals in the UK who have mild to severe sight loss. This could be as a result of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, or age-related macular degeneration, for example. It is important that the participants have had regular experiences going to the opticians, as this is the focus of the research. 

    I will send you an email, desai786!
