KC Coffee Morning 8th August at 10:30 on Zoom

Coffee with David

Coffee with David Gable - KC Group Chairman We have greatly missed the chance to socialise with our members at our regular meeting in London, West Midlands and seeing familiar faces at events like Sight Village.

Moorfields Eye to Eye Walk

Each year Moorfields organises this walk from the main hospital in City Road to the London Eye. You can chose the 4 or 14 mile option. For the last couple of years we have had a small KC team covering the longer route. It is very attractive staring out along the Regents Canal. Last year it diverted ...

I tried them on and they completely covered the top and sides. I thought she said that she got them from Moorfields but I can't find them...

Re: Grafts - good experiences?

I hesitate to sound complacent but I feel you need a good experience to balance out the comments. I had a graft on my left eye in 1986 and it is difficult to remember the specifics. What I can remember is that I was back working within a week or so and there was an immediate relief in only wearing o...
