Our old site gave us sterling service over the last 10-11 years, but times move on.
The new web site is secure (data is encrypted), responsive (it behaves slightly differently to accommodate different sized screens such as tablets and mobile phones) and it is much easier for us to update it – so it’s quite likely that we will update it and add new content more often than before.
Do you successfully wear contact lenses for KC and could you reassure recently diagnosed people that the condition doesn’t get in the way of most things in life?
We’ve been approached by the Eye Health Information Service of RNIB for help with a video they’re planning. They already produce some good information about KC (see this link http://www.rnib.org.uk/eye-health-eye-c … eratoconus) but would like to add one or two stories.
This is the information they have sent us –
Can you help us make a film about keratoconus? We are looking for someone with keratoconus who wears contact lenses to correct their vision to tell their story to camera so that others diagnosed with the condition can find out more about clinically necessary contact lenses. If you feel that you can tell your story to camera, we would love to hear from you. We will offer you lots of support so it wouldn’t be at all daunting!
If you are aged 18 to 40 and wear contact lenses fitted at hospital for keratoconus and are interested in taking part please contact the RNIB Eye Health Information Service on 020 7391 2014 for more details.
The filming will take place in Central London and we will pay reasonable travel expenses.
While there have been a number of studies demonstrating the effectiveness of CXL in adults and the procedure has been approved by NICE for use in the NHS, much less is known about the effectiveness of CXL in children.
