Next Coffee morning: Saturday 24th July, 1030 BST

Our Coffee mornings provide a good opportunity for those newly diagnosed to meet seasoned travellers and discuss all things KC. Anyone with an interest in Keratoconus is free to join us.

You will need to download the Zoom App to your computer or tablet. Then send an email to Chair@kcgroup.org.uk. On receipt of that email you will be sent a link nearer the date which will enable you to join the meeting.

This time we are going to be joined by Howard Maile who is working on a joint project with University College London and Moorfields Eye Hospital. Howard will talk about his work identifying risk factors for progression of keratoconus from first presentation, enabling better informed decisions about which patients should be offered crosslinking and at what stage. He will also talk about the second phase of his research, which is looking at how machine learning could improve the detection of subclinical keratoconus (before there are any obvious symptoms) leading to earlier diagnosis.
