Hello from NKCF!

Perhaps you never heard the word ‘keratoconus’ until recently. Or perhaps you have known about this condition for several decades.

For more than 30 years, the National Keratoconus Foundation has educated the public about this eye disease. We bring together eyecare professionals, researchers, industry and, most importantly, individuals living with keratoconus.

Please read through our website to learn more and share the information with family members and co-workers so that they can appreciate the nature and effect of your vision problems.

We’ve made an effort to minimize technical language to describe keratoconus in terms that are easy to understand. Please ask your eye doctor specific questions you may have regarding your condition. And remember, stay positive and do not dwell on how keratoconus impairs your life. Rather, celebrate all that you achieve living with keratoconus.
