Event Details

Welcome to the online booking page for the Nystagmus Network's 2013 Open Day in Bristol.

 

This year's key-note speaker is Lucy Hodges, a member of the world champion GB blind sailing team 2013. We will have a drama session for young people and our first ever acquired nystagmus discussion group. Exhibitors this year include Dolphin Computer, Edward Marcus, Independent Vision and Optelec, plus the Aniridia Network UK.

 

 

 

We hold Open Days so that we can learn about nystagmus and meet others affected by this eye condition. This is your chance to talk to people of all ages who have nystagmus, are parents of children with nystagmus or have a professional interest in nystagmus as teachers, orthoptists, optometrists, rehab workers, etc.

 

 

 

You can speak to medics, researchers and other professionals in an informal setting, including members of the nystagmus research teams in Cardiff, Leicester and Plymouth. NN scientific adviser Professor Chris Harris will give an overview of our recent international research workshop where 30 experts from around the world discussed the next steps for nystagmus.

 

You can join in discussion groups on nystagmus and education, employment and benefits -- as well as our very popular session for parents.

In all, we expect at least 150 people to join us in Bristol's City Centre Marriott hotel. Places are going fast, so book early to avoid disappointment. Here's what people said about last year's Open Day in Manchester:

 

 

 "A fantastic day! Thank you so much. It was so informative and inspiring, we'll definitely be along next year! What a brilliant team!"

 

 

"We are so pleased we came today. We have learnt so much from the NN team and other parents. Thank you."

"My colleagues and I found it a really interesting day. It was well organised, the content was very varied, the discussion groups particularly interesting."
