Part 1: Online Sleep Survey

The purpose of the survey is to identify any sleep concerns and disruption to daily rhythms that may be experienced by visually impaired individuals.

The outcomes of this research will help us to provide informed feedback to healthcare professionals about the links between sleep and vision loss, and guide further research to meet the needs of the community.

The Online Survey will ask you questions related to your:

  • Visual health
  • Sleep
  • Physical health and current medications
  • Mental health and well-being
  • Light perception and any associated pain or discomfort

The Survey takes 45 – 60 minutes to complete and can be completed online, or over the telephone with one of our friendly researchers.

Part 2: Sleep and Circadian Monitoring Study

Please note, Part 2 of the study is temporarily suspended in line with current public health guidelines. Participants who may be eligible for Part 2 will be contacted in due course. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.

The aim of this study develop new methods to measure biological (circadian) rhythms to accurately detect underlying disruption of sleep and circadian patterns. To do this, the research study will measure a series of physiological and biological markers in Vision Impaired individuals experiencing disrupted circadian rhythms.

Participation in the Online Sleep Survey does not require Participation in Part 2.
