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 visual loss on diet and appetite.

In order to do this we need to recruit visually impaired participants to take part in a questionnaire that investigates the relationship between visual loss and diet and appetite. We will use the findings to help develop a dietary intervention. The importance of nutritional status in overall improvement of quality of life has been shown to be very significant.

The questionnaire will be delivered over the telephone. The call will last approximately an hour Nabila Jones from the research team will arrange an appropriate date and time to call and deliver the questionnaire. The participants will also be called over two days in the same week also (one weekend day) to re-call what they ate on that day. This will take about five minutes.
