Calling people living with nystagmus in Scotland who are over 65

Are you an older adult living with visual impairment?
We are a team of researchers at the University of Strathclyde who want to explore your experiences of travelling from home to healthcare premises in Scotland.
What is the purpose of this study?
This study aims to understand the challenges faced and strategies used by older people with visual impairments when navigating to and within healthcare settings. We want to develop recommendations on how healthcare environments should be designed or improved to accommodate the needs of this population among other users.
Who can participate?
You must meet the following criteria to participate:
• Aged 65 and over
• Have a visual impairment (registered or not)
• Speak and understand English
• Live at home
• Able to walk outside of their home (independently or accompanied)
What will you do?
You will participate in one interview session, no longer than 60 minutes.
The interview can take place online, over the phone or in person at the university or somewhere local.
You will be offered a small token of appreciation for your time and any expenses will be reimbursed.
