Cornea Connect 2019

The UCL Institute of Ophthalmology in London is inviting patients with aniridia to meet scientists, learn about research and discuss their experiences at Cornea Connect 2019, taking place on Monday 20th May.

The day will begin with talks from researchers and clinicians, and also any individuals who would be happy to offer a patient perspective. There will then be an interactive session demonstrating some of the work being done by the researchers, as well as smaller focus group sessions.

This event is important because corneal opacification affects people with aniridia, due to deficiencies in the eye’s limbal stem cells. So this is a great opportunity to meet scientists and discuss important issues relating to corneal research.

Several members of the Aniridia Network previously attended the 2014 event, which was a great success.

There are only 10 places available so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The event is for over-16s only. Once registered, you will be contacted to ask if you have any special access requirements.

If you require further information about the event, please contact Ashkon Seyed-Safi at or call 020 7608 6996.
