Our groups are open to a wide range of professionals, including eye specialists such as opticians, optometrists and ophthalmologists as well as corneal specialists, researchers and psychological professionals. This means that you’ll have access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise that can help you better understand your condition and how to manage it.

Learning from others:
By bringing together individuals from various backgrounds, we hope to create a community that can share knowledge and support one another. This means that you’ll have the opportunity to learn from others who are going through similar experiences, and to share your own experiences and insights with the group.
