We invite you to participate in a survey to help us understand whether the coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on the management of your eye disorders, and whether it has caused undue stress and anxiety. You can complete the survey even if you have not had Covid-19 or suffered any symptoms of Covid-19. To complete the survey, you should be above 18 years of age and should have eye or sight problems (which also includes the use of spectacles). Anglia Ruskin University is conducting an online Research study. This will take around 10-12 minutes to complete. 

Taking part in this survey is completely optional and you should only take part if you have eye or sight problems and you are willing to take part in the study. There are no risk or precautions to be taken when participating in this study. If you have any questions, please contact the study team lead Professor Shahina Pardhan at

All information collected from you in relation to this research will be anonymised. Generated reports from this study will include your data but it will not be possible to identify you from the reported data.

If you have any complaints about the study, please contact in the first instance. If you feel you need to speak with someone further, please do so using the following details:
