Keratoconus Community Networks

There are several keratoconus community forums and message boards online that we encourage you to participate in to better understand keratoconus, FDA-approved cross-linking and other treatment options. These are the most common places that patients go to seek out information about their diagnosis and build relationships with members of the keratoconus community.

We encourage you to join these groups and participate in the conversation.
