Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Older Workers Survey

We are conducting this survey of people who are blind or visually impaired, who experienced vision loss at age 55 or older, and who continued to work or returned to work after vision loss. The criteria for taking the survey are as follows: (1) You experienced vision loss that started when you were age 55 or older and (2) You continued to work or return to work after experiencing vision loss (even if you are retired now). If the answer to both criteria is "yes," please take this 22 question survey. We will enter your name in a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card if you participate and share your contact information with us by emailing and indicate "survey drawing" in the subject line.

Please complete the survey by February 29, 2016.

The survey will help us with the development and updating of information on VisionAware for older individuals with vision loss who are seeking to retain jobs or find employment.
