Date: Tuesday 24 November 2015

Time: 6.00pm – 7.30pm

*Light refreshments from 5.30pm

Hosted by Associate Professor Mark Daniell , Principal Investigator, Corneal Research, Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA).

It is an exciting and hopeful time for people with keratoconus. Corneal collagen cross-linking has the potential of being the most significant breakthrough for treating and halting the progression of the disease. Together with the identification of keratoconus genes and the development of new screening technologies, there is much to inform you in this free information forum brought to you by the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA).

There will be time for questions with the speakers about their presentations, or broader keratoconus research.
