Nystagmus Open Day 2012 – Date Announced

Every year, the Nystagmus Network hosts an open day for anyone wanting to find out more about nystagmus. The details this year, are as follows:

Date:            Saturday 20th October 2012
Location:   Manchester

It’s a great opportunity for people to meet others in similar situations to themselves and to find out more abouve nystagmus. The event usually caters well for everyone; people with nystagmus, friends, family, teachers, medical professionals and researchers. There are usually presentations covering research into nystagmus, the social aspects of having nystagmus and how to support people with nystagmus.

The general feedback is that one of the most rewarding things about the event, is meeting others with nystagmus or others in the same situation, e.g. other parents. There is a lack of available information and this annual event, is a key opportunity for learning more and asking those ‘dumb’ questions – everyone’s happy to talk about it! There’s also researchers and professionals on hand!

Keep an eye out for further information; you will need to register in advance to book a place.
