Today is Rare Disease Day!
Every day we help patients who have become visually impaired because of various eye diseases, often rare ones, to see again. Our LaserFit System was developed by Doctor Greg Gemoules after intensive research and the constant pushing of the boundaries of new technology. Our team has spent many years developing the non-invasive cutting edge technology known as the LaserFit scleral lens prosthetic system. LaserFit often delivers life-changing vision outcomes for people suffering severe visual distortions due to corneal irregularities from rare ocular diseases.
Doctor Gemoules a pioneer in the field of prosthetic scleral lens optics has always been passionate about the potential of technology to solve people’s medical problems and has helped many sufferers world over to restore their quality of vision. Both Dr.G & the entire LaserFit team are proud supporters of Rare Disease Day. Rare Disease Day is
held the last day of February each year and is an opportunity to raise awareness for rare diseases. It is an initiative that helps drive awareness about rare diseases.
On 28 February 2017, people living with or affected by a rare disease, patient organisations, politicians, carers, medical professionals, researchers and industry will come together in solidarity to raise awareness of rare diseases.
The Rare Disease Day 2017 theme ‘Research’ recognises that rare disease research is crucial to providing patients with the answers and solutions they need, whether it is a cure, treatment or improved care.
The Rare Disease Day 2017 slogan is ‘With research, possibilities are limitless.’ Research brings much needed hope to people living rare disease, their families and carers, and can be life-changing.
Today we hope to add our voice to the platform for those affected by rare disease to communicate and sharing experiences as well as raising awareness amongst the general public.
With enough research the possibilities for helping those with rare disorders are endless. Be part of the change. Please help us spread awareness for #RareDiseaseDay
