Russel Nugent | Optometrist: Running 250km Extreme  Marathon to raise fund for a keratoconus sufferer

Help me restore Kamogelo’s eye sight

 

Kamogelo Makgalo is a 15 year old boy from Pretoria, South Africa. He has keratoconus which has SEVERELY affected his vision. Keratoconus (KC) is a degenerative, non-inflammatory disease of the eye that causes the normally spherical cornea to progressively thin and protrude creating an irregular conical shape. Kamogelo’s keratoconus is In the advanced stage, and his the cornea becomes scarred and lost its transparency. Only a corneal graft (transplant) will restore his vision The doctors who support our cause will perform the surgery procedure for free. Nonetheless the costs of sourcing and importing a donor cornea are substantial. Please help us with a small contribution to enable the Keratoconus Foundation of South Africa to help him A small contribution is not going to change your world but it is going to change the world for him.
