Re: Lifestyle after corneal graft

To follow up Clarissa, I've got a 35 year old graft that's survived a great deal of travelling, jiving, jogging, places with temperatures from -40C to +55C and also a one minute free-fall parachute drop from 15,000 feet, so you do not need to feel that you will be inhibited - you will need to wait t...

Re: I have keratoconus

It may help a little for you to know that there are a lot of us out here who DO know what you are going through and can empathise with you Imben. You are certainly having a bad time but one other possible source of help, further to those Anne has given you, might be Blind Children UK. Don't be put o...

Re: Next West Midlands meeting

Thanks for the broadcast suggestion but my experience of these systems is that the quality can be very variable and they are often a distraction to the speakers.
