By taking part in a new survey you will help Fight for Sight put vision impairment on the map and increase funding into eye research.

Today we tell you about a new survey by UK eye research charity, Fight for Sight which seeks to put sight loss and eye conditions on the map and increase funding into eye research. You can help by taking part in the survey and sharing your experience of living with nystagmus. It should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
Pioneering eye research projects
You may not be aware, but currently sight loss costs the UK economy over £28 billion each year. Yet only 1% of public grant funding for medical research is spent on eye research. That's just £20 for each person living with sight loss.
Fight for Sight is determined to change this - but they need your support. Taking part in the survey could help them secure urgently needed funding for pioneering eye research projects.
Fight for Sight have asked Populus and Kaleidoscope Research to conduct the survey. They are independent research organisations and the information you share via this survey will be used for research purposes. The findings may be used as part of the evidence Fight for Sight present when seeking funding for eye research projects, in reports and as part of their publicity and campaigns work. Any findings published will be anonymised and not used in a manner which could identify you. Your privacy will be respected at all times and your information will be kept securely.
Whether it's raining outside, snowing or blowing a gale you can get a warm feeling inside and the chance to win up to £25,000 every week for just £1 simply by signing up to the Nystagmus Network weather lottery.
The charity receives every single penny of the profits.
Did you know that for every £1 you donate to the Nystagmus Network and for every £1 of your annual membership subscription, we can claim an additional 25p back from the UK government, provided you are a UK tax payer? Already donated? You can still sign up today to help us claim your tax back. We can backdate our claim up to 4 years.
