We have been asked to conduct a survey to find out parents and childrens' attitudes and perceptions about different vision correction options. Please be aware the questions for your child do discuss various aspects of children wearing contacts.

The survey is open to all UK MNers who have at least one child aged 10-17 years who currently requires some sort of vision correction such as glasses or contact lenses. We have lots of responses from children aged 12 and under and would ideally like to get more from those aged 13+ now, though all welcome...

This survey has two main pages of questions: one for parents and one for your child.

Please ensure your child is nearby when you start this survey as you'll need them to add their responses to the last page - if your child is not with you now please bookmark this thread or the survey link and complete it when you are together. If necessary you can leave the survey open which should save your responses but it would work best if your child is there and able to do the survey after you've answered your questions. There are 20 questions for you and 10 for your child.

We're looking for around 500 parents and 500 children to complete this survey. As a special incentive we have £250 of vouchers to be won by TWO lucky MN families. The two winners - drawn at random from everyone adding their details - can choose from John Lewis or iTunes vouchers to the value of £250 - and we're leaving it up to you how you negotiate with your child over how (if at all) the £250 is split between you wink should you win....

Here's the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VVKJVPG

Many thanks

PS Please note this survey has been sent to a sample from our panel. Please only complete it once per family.

Completed with my 11yr old dd, although she is not at all interested in contact lenses. I'd be happy enough for her to try them when she's a few years older but she doesn't like the thought of poking about in her eyes just yet grin

Have done the survey with 13 year old dd but did not receive any acknowledgement when it was submitted. Is it working OK?

Just realised, ds age nearly 14 , has to wear glasses at school for reading / computer work. (he does not wear them at home so I had forgotten he wears them tbh blush)
I would be very interested in his answers to the questions (to see if he finds them misleading too, I cannot imagine it would sway him)

Can I fill the survey in for him too?

I did wonder if the questions especially for the children weren't aimed at nudging them towards asking for contact lenses. Personally I don't think my son age 12 with his sticky mucky paws is ready for them.
