Researchers at Aston University are inviting those that are sight impaired and severely impaired in the UK, to take part in a study investigating the impact of vision loss on diet and appetite.

Participants will complete a telephone questionnaire, which will take approximately an hour to complete. They will then be contacted on two other days in the same week for approximately 5 minutes. The findings of the study will help develop a dietary aid aiming to improve the nutritional status of visually impaired people. This dietary aid may take the form of an educational tool. A good nutritional status has been shown to significantly improve a person’s overall quality of life.
