The Institute of Ophthalmology at UCL, London are looking for volunteers who have been diagnosed with thyroid receptor dysfunction to come along and take part in a research project at Moorfields Eye Hospital.
They inform us that, "This research is trying to identify the mechanism by which thyroid receptor dysfunction impacts on vision and in particular, people’s colour vision. This will be a key step towards finding treatments for this and similar genetic eye disorder.
If you are interested in taking part, you would need to be free to attend Moorfields for a short visit (about one hour) in the coming months.
The test involves sitting at a computer and clicking either a left or right button when images appear on the screen. The test is completely non-invasive, we will not be giving you any medications, you will not have to wear any special glasses or eye patches to take the test. All travel costs will be reimbursed."
For more information or to find out how to take part please contact: Dr. Matteo Rizzi, firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. 07835164303
