Do you or does someone you know have a condition that affects the cornea? It can be from illness, injury or an inherited corneal dystrophy. Fight for Sight is looking for patients, relatives or carers of people with corneal conditions to join a focus group in our London offices in May (date tbc).

We are working with the National Institute for Health Research on a horizon scan to find out what new therapies are being developed for corneal disorders and we are keen to have input from those who know best – the people directly affected. We want to know how relevant the treatments are and whether they present any hurdles to get over before they could be used.

If you think you might be interested in joining us, please could you let us know by emailing us at info@fightforsight.org.uk

In 2012 during the Sight Loss and Vision Priority Setting Partnership you told us what questions you would like answered by research, people with corneal and external eye conditions said that a priority question for them was:

 “Can new therapies such as gene or stem cell treatments be developed for corneal diseases?”

Here’s chance to find out. Help us create a future everyone can see
