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.

Corneal cross-linking provides patients a much-needed option to treat this debilitating disease. Patients suffering from progressive keratoconus can now receive a therapeutic treatment that has been rigorously tested and approved."

Ophthalmologists and optometrists play complementary roles in #eye care. #Optometrists provide primary vision care, diagnose & treat eye conditions, and fit contact lenses. #Ophthalmologists are medical doctors that can perform eye surgery, such as #crosslinking. @StephenCurry30
