Our Autumn Speaker meeting will be held on Saturday 9th October at 11am on Zoom. At that meeting Professor Frank Larkin will present the results of the Keralink trial into the safety and effectiveness of corneal crosslinking (CXL) in young people aged 10 to 16, which is so important for the future treatment of KC. We have asked Professor Larkin to make this presentation via Zoom, so that members can join the meeting wherever they live in the UK. We will also record the event so it will be available on our website for those who cannot join us on the day. To join the meeting please request a link by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have previously attended one of our KC Coffee mornings you will be automatically sent a link so there is no need to send a request.
In addition, Moorfields Biomedical Research Centre is planning a Keratoconus Day in November at which Professor Larkin will present the results to the young people who took part in the trial and to their parents. KC Group members will also be invited to attend the day, which will include further presentations on research into keratoconus. The venue for this event is likely to be a lecture room in University College, London. The date has not yet been fixed and the programme is currently being planned. So if you’re longing to meet up with other people with KC in person again, and interested in what promises to be a fascinating day, do keep an eye on our website, where we’ll announce details as soon as they are available.
