UK NEHS

High quality data for UK hearing, eye-health and vision

The UK National Eye-Health and Hearing Study is a research study being developed to gather data to understand why people in the UK are losing their sight due to preventable causes, and why people continue to live with correctable visual impairment and hearing loss.

The UK NEHS is a nation-wide study encompassing all four nations. It will identify the prevalence and causes of vision impairment and blindness in the UK population aged 50 and over, providing an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of the UK’s eye health.
