We are excited to announce that we are starting a new sub-study which is a voluntary part of ASCEND known as ASCEND-EYE. The purpose of ASCEND-EYE is to see whether aspirin and/or omega-3 fish oils have any effect on diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. For further information about this sub-study, please see this video and the ASCEND-EYE Participant Information Leaflet.


Our study participants will be receiving the ASCEND-EYE Visual Function Questionnaire about sight and how any problems affect day-to-day activities like reading and driving. If you have any queries about ASCEND-EYE or you would like any support for completing the questionnaire, please contact us on 0800 585 323 or email us at
