Eyesight survey

07/10/14 . Partners

A new survey is trying to look at the impact of colour-blindness on everyday life.

Colour blindness affects about one in 10 men and one in 200 women. That means it's 20 times more common in men.

People who are colour blind and people with normal eyesight are invited to join an online survey by University College London Medical School of the impact of being colour blind on quality of life. The survey is confidential and anonymous. It takes about 15 minutes, depending on how much you want to say. If you are interested, please click on this link: UCL colour blindness survey.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
