Moorfields Eye to Eye 14 mile walk 2018

Eight of us formed the KC team among the 500 walkers. We gathered in front of the piano in Moorfields reception for a photo. After two of the coldest days in decades, the sun came out to send us on our way. It was a bright crisp morning with plenty of ice still floating on the canal. The route was p...

My KC Story

Recently I have become more aware of the importance of sharing our experiences. I realised that until I telephoned Anne Klepacz in 2014, apart from hospital clinics, I had not spoken to a single person who had the condition or knew anything about it. All the time I was under the NHS I felt that it w...

Re: A question for anyone that's had a graft...

Without lenses I’m sure I too would have been classified as legally blind. It was a long time ago but I remember that without lenses I could not cross the road or even butter my toast easily. I had to stand about 5 foot away from the top letter on the eye chart before I could read it. That said, wit...

Re: Recently diagnosed

To add to what Anne has said, many of us have managed full careers with the aid of specialist contact lenses and, where necessary transplants. I had my second transplant in 1995 and, at the time had a 30 mile drive to work. From memory, I only had a few weeks off work, so all is not lost. Finding so...

Re: Honest Opinions Please

I have just watched the DVD of the 2013 Confrence. It is worth watching the first speaker on the treatment of Keratoconus, I found it interesting. I'm sure Anne will send you a copy if you haven't got one already?

Re: Intacs & cross link

Just listened to the testimonial on the Boxer Wachler Web Site. Sounds very good. I just wonder if any one from the UK has been to see him and how did they get on?

Re: 2nd graft

I haven't any advice but I can say that I have had grafts in both eyes, one in 1986 and a second in 1995. I need to ware glasses to correct an astigmatism but apart from that I have gone on to have a full career and now my biggest problem is not seeing my golf ball if I hit a good shot. The surgical...
