NKCF Resources

The NKCF has developed a variety of programs to provide support and information to those with keratoconus and their families


Booklet for Patients: Both booklets, in English and Spanish, are available to patients and eye care providers.

The NKCF offers a list of eye care providers who have a special expertise in treating keratoconus. All professionals invited to participate currently have a substantial number of keratoconus patients in their practices: Keratoconus Referrals for Patients.

Each year, the NKCF receives over 1,000 inquiries from patients looking for eye care professionals who have a special interest and expertise in treating keratoconus. We provide, free of charge, a list of ophthalmologists, optometrists and contact lens fitters practicing in the patient’s home state.

If you would like to be included in the NKCF Referral Service, submit your information here to be considered: Keratoconus Referral Service.

Reimbursement appeals help to introduce and explain the condition of keratoconus to insurance companies, help clarify the treatments necessary that may not always be covered by insurance companies, and help attain a reimbursement for KC patients for treatment costs. Download here.

KC-Link is a worldwide interactive forum for people with keratoconus. It is a free e-mail based mail list for both keratoconus patients and eye care providers. The KC-link offers those with keratoconus a unique opportunity to share their “KC” experiences and concerns with others who can truly understand the frustrations of this condition.
