The fenestration in my scleral made it possible for me to squirt fluid at people by blinking!

that would get my support rather than this obscene amount being spent on an opening ceremony whilst services are being cut

Andrew - this is so amazing - I so wish it had been around when I was diagnosed although not sure the Internet was around then so that may have been a contributory factor!!! What about a chapter dealing with the emotional impact upon self and nearest and dearest?

That's a good idea. I'll give it some serious thought.

I just watched parts 1 2 and 3 of your video Andrew and thought you explained KC very well in the short space of time that you had. I thinl it great that you are raising awareness of this condition as people don't always understand the difficulties people can experience with an eye condition like this. Thanks. :D

Thank you! I think I've finished talking about Keratoconus, but it would be good to see others from the forum sharing their experiences.
