How does vision and vision impairment affect ageing and other health conditions?

Recent clinical research investigating eye misalignment and the outcomes from surgery, funded by an NIHR clinical doctoral fellowship, will be presented. Current research into vision impairment in older people will be presented, including participatory research exploring the experiences of older people with vision impairment during hospital stays and the use of technology in adults with low vision.
