DISCOVERY EYE FOUNDATION
June 29, 2010

When I was diagnosed with Keratoconus in 1998, I never heard of keratoconus before and had no idea what it was. Searching in the internet I found the NKCF. They not only answered my questions and concerns, but with the letter they send to my insurance I was able to obtain approval for payments of the office visits, treatment and contact lenses.Their newsletters keep me inform of the newest treatments and technological advances to treat keratoconus. which in turn i discussed with my doctor. The last contact lenses I made are using one of those cushion lenses and they are much more comfortable in addition to reduced the scars I had on one of my eyes while improving my vision.

More doctors knew about this disease and were informed of the newest treatments available for these patients.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

that people not suffering of keratoconus lack of knowledge of its existance.
