Eye Care Survey for Adults with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism

Regular eye tests are the best way to check for and get help for any sight problems or certain diseases, so you can make the best use of your eyesight. We want to hear from adults with learning disabilities and/or autism who live in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We want to know what you think about eye tests and eye care.

Your responses will help inform the NHS and SeeAbility about how eye care services can be improved and whether people with a learning disability and/or autism need their own eye test service. 

Please tell us what you think in this online survey by Sunday, 16 February 2020. If you want, your carer can complete it with you or for you. Your information will be kept safe and private.

In this survey, we will use the words below:
  • An optometrist usually performs an eye test in a community or hospital setting and an ophthalmologist carries out eye tests in a hospital. We will call them “opticians.” 
  • Having your eyes checked is called an eye examination, an eye test or a sight test. We will call them “eye tests."
