support groups

Joining a support group holds great value for AK Warriors (patients), family and friends, by offering a sense of belonging and understanding that may be hard to find elsewhere. Being part of a support group allows members to share their experiences, challenges, and triumphs with those who truly understand their journey.

Our support groups offer a secure, welcoming and non-judgmental space for individuals to openly express their emotions and receive compassionate support, which can be incredibly therapeutic, easing feelings of isolation and loneliness. Additionally, listening to others’ stories can provide new patients perspectives and coping strategies, nurturing resilience and hope.

Furthermore, we enable the sharing of knowledge among a diverse group of professionals, ranging from eye specialists like opticians, optometrists, ophthalmologists, corneal specialists, to researchers, and mental health professionals. They offer practical advice and resources that can prove invaluable for the patient advocating for themselves.

Ultimately, joining a support group can enhance emotional well-being, cultivate a sense of community, and provide practical assistance, making it a valuable resource for individuals facing Acanthamoeba Keratitis.
