Contact Details

We are very grateful to the continued support and enthusiasm of the parents and children who take part in our studies. Without their involvement there would be no Down's Syndrome Vision Research Unit. We would like to continue monitoring visual development in children with Down's syndrome, so if you are the parent(s) of a child with Down's syndrome, living in South Wales, why not contact us and find out how you can get involved?

If you live further afield, we may be able to see your child for a clinical evaluation, or provide advice to you by telephone or Email. If you are an adult with Down's syndrome, you may also attend our clinic.
If you are a teacher, learning support assistant, social worker, nurse or anyone with an interest in eye tests for people with Down’s syndrome, and you would like to sit in on an eye examination to learn more, then please get in touch.

Whatever your interest or concern, contact us as below.
