World KC Day is November 10th!
World KC Day is an awareness day to help bring a spotlight to keratoconus and honor those that live and cope with keratoconus every day.
Keratoconus, often abbreviated as “KC”, is a non-inflammatory eye condition in which the normally round dome-shaped cornea progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. This results in significant visual impairment.
Do you or someone you know have KC?
