Assessment of nutritional supplementation on eye health - call for volunteers

Within the Ophthalmic Research Group we are investigating the effect of taking an ocular nutritional supplement on eye health. It is thought that this supplement might be useful for people with age-related macular disease, as well as for those with a family history of this condition.

We are looking for volunteers of all ages to take part. The project will involve visiting the Optometry department every five months for a period of twenty months. Each visit will last for about one hour.

If you are interested in hearing more about the project, please contact Emma Berrow on ext 4208.
