Exciting new research project

Postby Anne Klepacz » Tue 05 May 2020 1:22 pm

The Keratoconus Group, in partnership with Fight For Sight, has made an award of 15K to fund this exciting project.

Glasses which could correct the irregular astigmatism of KC must be the Holy Grail for many people with the condition. So we wish Dr Abass every success with his research.

The trial has been delayed because of Covid so we do not expect to get any news for some time.
