Researchers Seeking Volunteers for Vision Study

If you are between the ages of 12 and 45 and living with or without Type 1 diabetes, you may be interested in a new study at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, that is currently recruiting volunteers.

The researchers are evaluating a new imaging tool that may be able to diagnose diabetic retinopathy (eye disease) in its early stages.


Participating in the research involves having your eyes examined with a number of non-invasive vision tests at the hospital over the course of about three hours. Volunteer hours will be provided and participants will be compensated.

To learn more about the research, contact study coordinate Aparna Bhan at (416) 813-7654, extension 204170, or at [email protected].
