Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 45 years experience
Genetic blindness: This is an autosomal recessive disease (i.e., the patient inherits one defective gene from each parent), with progressive loss of vision and sometimes other neurologic problems. Carriers (one copy of the gene) may have some visual problems. There is no specific treatment, and my hope is that if you or someone you know is affected, good supportive care will be available.
