5* - I found them earlier this year and would be lost without it. I'm due my first transplant in under a week and the support is amazing.

A new group - but already a wealth of information available here along with discussion and support. I only wish I had had access to this sort of resource when I was first diagnosed over 20 years back - things would have been so much easier!

This facebook page and forum have been a godsend to me. Every day I appreciate being able to speak to others who understand KC and share info and advice. Much better and more open than USA based forums I have joined!

A really supportive group, where not only do we share experiences (good and bad) but we can also share tips and ask the questions we forgot to ask at consultations.

I am very glad I found this group on Facebook... It comforting to know that there is a community of kind people that are willing to share their experiences first hand.

This is my 2nd review of the group. I originally found the main FB page early 2012 & this was before I had my graft done the same year. The group has grown so much in this period. I'm now 14 months into my graft journey & can honestly say without the support of many people via the private FB forum & Twitter pages I'd be lost. I have now written a few blogs for the group page which if I'm honest never thought I would do because I'm not very good at that sort of thing but it has actually helped me getting it all written down & surprisingly people do respond to them. In my opinion this is the most informative group around with really inspiring people that will be friends for life.

KCGB is a brilliant group of people. Without them I would not have decided to pursue a fix for my KC again as I had numerous failed attempts at correcting my vision. Everyone is extremely helpful and each and every member is treated with respect, regardless of their opinion on something. I honestly don't know what I would have done about my KC without them.

This is THE best support group not only for those who have Keratoconus but for their families too. It is friendly & welcoming & someone is readily available to respond to a question, lend a shoulder or offer fantastic advice. The information posted is always up-to -date & accurate. Can't recommend highly enough!
