How to Join in

Register an Account

Before you can play Eyelander you will need to create an account with a valid email address. To register an account you can start by clicking on the Play button on the homepage and select the button that reads: ‘Click here to register’. This will take you to the registration page where you will be given three options for registration depending on whether you are over 18 and whether you want to take part in our research project.

Taking part in Research

Eyelander started as a research project to help us understand whether visual search training can improve functional vision for children and young adults with partial visual field loss. There is still a lot we don’t understand about this problem and we would like to ask you to take part in further research by allowing us to track your in-game data as you play. We would also like to ask you some questions about your vision when you register, and again after you have played the game ten times. Before you decide whether you want to take part, it is important that you read the information about the research project on the registration page(s) carefully and discuss it with others if you want to. Do contact us if any of the details on those pages are not clear or if you would like more information.

Play Eyelander

Once you have activated your account successfully you will be able to start playing Eyelander. Eyelander requires a stable internet connection and a modern browser to play. Modern mobile platforms and touchscreens are supported, as well as desktops and laptops, although we recommend playing the game on a 10 inch screen or larger display. Our pilot study has indicated that significant improvements in functional vision can be measured after completing the game approximately ten times over a 3-4 week period.

Parental consent

We take data protection seriously particularly when it involves children or young people. That means if you are under the age of 18 and want to take part in research we need permission from your parent or legal guardian, and they will need to confirm your registration details. If you are under the age of 18 and decide that you don’t want to take part in research you can register to play the game yourself and we won’t record your personal data – except for the email address you use to register your account.

Incompatible Screen Size

The size of your game window suggests you're playing on a mobile platform. Unfortunately this game isn't playable on devices with small screens.

Have you tried maximising the size of the window?

You can still access the site and register an account, but the game can only be played on a desktop computer that has a mouse.
