Today sees the launch of a public planning consultation, which sets out the early designs for the new centre for eye care, research and education. As we progress our plans, we want your views on these early designs. This feedback will be essential in helping us design a centre that is modern, fit for purpose and accessible for users.
You can find out more information on how to have your say on the get involved page of the Oriel website.
We would love to hear your opinions and experiences of attending virtual glaucoma clinics during lockdown. How is the experience different to normal? What is good, bad or just worth commenting on? Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in getting involved in filming discussions? This is for a series of webinars we’re doing, presenting patients’ experiences. You would be paired with someone else who has glaucoma, and have a guided conversation about your experiences of having glaucoma and attending appointments/receiving treatment etc. It would take around 2 hours of your time, and be done via Zoom or other video chat software. If interested or to find out more, contact Joanna Bradley on email@example.com.
We’re also doing work on improving our booklets and other written information to make them easier to read. We need input from people with glaucoma to ensure we’re explaining everything really clearly and simply. To get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you ever find health information (provided by Glaucoma UK, doctors or anyone else) difficult to read, we especially want to hear from you!
