The below research participant solicitation is being provided for informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no involvement in this research

To be eligible for this study, participants must:

*        Have a Low-vision diagnosis.

*        Be over age 18

*        Live in the U.S.
My name is Lauren Ashley Hughes, and I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Mississippi State and a graduate student at the Ball State University. I am being supervised in my research by Dr. Shireen Kanakri at Ball State University. I am conducting an online study investigating how contrast in the interior environment can affect a low-vision person's perception of the environment and their behavior within that environment. I am looking for low-vision participants with a low-vision diagnosis that are over the age of 18 and live in the United States of America to participate in my study.

This study consists of an online survey, which should take you less than fifteen minutes to complete. All of your responses will be anonymous and confidential.  Your willingness to participate in the survey will allow interior designers and architects to learn how to design the built environment to accommodate the low-vision population more effectively in the future.

To begin the study, please go to:

The survey can be accessed and filled out by computer or by mobile device.

If you have any questions before, during or after the study, feel free to contact me at 662-386-4887 or by email at ahughes at caad.msstate.edu<mailto:ahughes at caad.msstate.edu>. Dr. Kanakri can be reached at smkanakri at bsu.edu<mailto:smkanakri at bsu.edu>.

Thank you in advance for your participation in our research.

Warmest regards,
Lauren Ashley Hughes
