We are actively preparing for our Tenth Conference and holding it on 6th June (6/6). It will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in future developments in Keratoconus.

We will be leading with the Moorfields Genetic Research Study. Prof. Alison Hardcastle will be updating us on the recent publication of their major paper and where this is taking us. Joining her will be Dr. Sally Hayes who will be explaining how Cardiff University’s School of Optometry and Vision Sciences plan to use a £2.4 million grant from The Medical Research Council (MRC) on a large scale study of the cornea.
Last year we partnered Fight for Sight and awarded a small grant to Dr Mohamed Al-Aqaba to enable him to progress his research at Nottingham University into the relationship of corneal nerves and Progression of KC. The conference will be an ideal opportunity for him to update us on his findings.
Joining these speakers will be Prof. Rachel Williams from Royal Liverpool University Hospital, updating us on developments in Epi-On Cross Linking. Also from Liverpool will be a representative explaining the advances in Ultra-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography.
Taking us back to the basics of living with KC will be Dr Waheeda Illahi comparing the literature to reality and Ash Winter talking about his book – Keratoconus and Me.
Our conferences are a great opportunity for people affected by keratoconus to meet each other and the dedicated professionals who are working to make our lives better. It is also an opportunity for the clinicians to meet the people most affected by their endeavors.
