The Discovery Eye Foundation has been a great resource for learning more about a condition I have - Macular Degeneration. My daughter signed me up to attend a Vision Seminar conducted at the UC Irvine Campus. It was very informative, and we obtained additional valuable resources that assists me to see things better. I am very greatful for the extensive research they share with all of us, and I enjoy receiving their newsletter keeping me abreast of new information they have discovered in their research.

The Discovery Eye Foundation and provided up to date information on Macular Degeneration. By subscribing to the emails they distribute regularly I have been able to build hope that preventative progression of the disease may be in the near future. With my being at risk for both Glaucoma and having dry MD in both eyes I depend on these updates and health advisories to maintain and healthy lifestyle and preserve my vision as long as possible.

The seminars are a great way to find out about new research and procedures that are available. They will also help you find trial programs with support groups.

I don't know of any foundation that gives such great support, assistance and accurate information, and does it so kindly and so promptly. I am an AMD patient and the DISCOVERY EYE FOUNDATION has my unconditional gratitude.They are my prime source of comfort, advice and up to date information. I do thank them from the bottom of my heart. I hope that they will always get all the support that they need and deserve, and be able to continue to assist the visually handicapped in their very own wonderful way.

In a world where we are constantly exposed to large foundations with a lot of support and active members in the community focused toward the foundation the nkcf continues to shine through. This non profit exists to educate and move forward with innovative ways to prevent, cure and help those with the condition. When I was diagnosed with the condition this website was my first educational exposure. Although it is such a rare disease the foundation thrives to change the rare case and often the overlooked patient. For its size the foundation has gathered a large population of followers, but would be a perfect candidate for an award - it has been life changing for me. This is true especially because since it is so rare I beleieved that there was no one out there who could understand the struggle with the condition. Nkcf helped to connect me with others and has been so inspiring to me personally that I have set up a sponsorship with the foundation to raise awareness in my community and accept donations as a sponsorted triathlete of nkcf. I have pledged to donate $1500 and when I participate in ironman rhode island (a 70 mile triathlon) I will know that I'm not running for myself, I'm running for everyone with the experience of a keratoconus diagnosis... and that's all because of this foundation! Thank you nkcf!

I have found the Voundation to be an invaluable ally in my quest to provide information to patients dealing with KC. I regularly refer them to the website as THE most up-to-date source of information available. I have been very grateful for the referrals I have received as well. Randy J. Esptein, MD
