In brief: No

Usher syndrome is a condition characterized by severe to profound hearing loss and progressive vision loss.
The genetic mutations cause deterioration of the cochlear nerve, leading to partial or complete deafness, and deterioration of the light-sensing cells on the retina, leading to partial or complete blindness.
