The Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) require 300 patients and carers to participate in two research projects.

They need 100 wet AMD patients, 100 carers of people with wet AMD and 100 patients with cataract. The aim of the research is to assess the impact of restrictions on treatment access and to ask eye health specialists how their services are delivered.

Patients must have been diagnosed and treated for either wet AMD or cataracts in the last three years. This can include those who are still undergoing treatment or have completed it.

Research will be conducted confidentially over the telephone and reports will be published in Spring 2013. The results will enable the RNIB to campaign for primary care trusts to alter their policies and improve treatment access.

To enter patients who are interested in taking part please email campaigns@rnib.org.uk by Friday 14th December 2012.
