World Keratoconus Day
What is World KC Day?
World KC Day is celebrated on November 10. It is sponsored by the National Keratoconus Foundation (NKCF), an educational program of the Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, UC Irvine. The day is dedicated to raising awareness for KC, as well as educating and advocating for those living with the disease.
