Participate in a study investigating experiences of adults who are blind or have low vision during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the lives of adults with visual impairments and to identify solutions for these challenges. You will have the opportunity to share your experiences in the following areas:
• Social experiences
• Access to meals, food, and supplies
This survey is open to anyone over age 18 with a visual impairment in the United States.
The survey is open until 8 am ET on April 13.
AFB is proud to join this effort with fourteen organizations in the blindness community to create a world with no limits—which means that people with visual impairments are not limited in our access to healthcare, information, education, online work environments, transportation, food and other supplies, or voting during the COVID-19 pandemic or at any other time. If we’re going to flatten the curve, we need to ensure everyone is included and has access to critical information and services.
We encourage you to participate in this survey. If you know of an adult who doesn’t have access to the online survey, reach out to help them in filling out the survey. We want all US adults with visual impairments to have a voice in how we can work together to flatten the inaccessibility curve.
