Help needed to assist in research looking at the characteristics and impact of Nystagmus in children

The Research Unit for Nystagmus (RUN) at Cardiff University is looking for volunteers to help with a study they are doing to look at the characteristics of nystagmus in children with and without Down’s syndrome and how it affects their vision and eye movements. The study is led by PhD student, Asma Zahidi.

Asma Zahidi Cardiff Universitypproximately 1 to 1.5 hours. There will take a break after the vision test, before proceeding with the eye movement recording. The team at Cardiff will try to make the experience fun, and there will be no drops!

The sessions will be held during weekdays and will cover travel expenses to Cardiff up to £50 per child. The findings will be reported in my PhD thesis, hopefully at the end of 2018, and we plan to publish our findings in an open access journal.

The criteria of the participants is children with infantile nystagmus between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old.

The findings will be reported in Asma’s PhD thesis, hopefully at the end of 2018, which is planned to be published via an open access journal.

For more information email Asma Zahidi or call 029 2087 0556.
