Achromatopsia is a non-progressive, hereditary vision condition that causes reduction in vision, light sensitivity, nystagmus (shaking of the eyes), and an inability to perceive color. The retina, which is the light sensitive tissue that lines the inside of the eyes, is responsible for capturing the image and relaying it to the brain via the optic nerve to make an image. The light sensitive layer of the retina is made up of photoreceptors cells called the cone cells, which is responsible for good visual acuity, daytime vision and color vision, and rod cells, which helps us function in dim light and provide black and white vision as well as good peripheral vision. Patients with achromotopsia lack cone cells, which means that they do not see color and cannot function in bright light conditions. Since they only have rod cells, achromats perform better in dimly lit conditions. Our goal at Rothbloom Eye Care is to provide UV protection, filters, tinted spectacle lenses and contact lenses to help reduce the sensitivity to light and enhance the patient's visual function.
