Currently, there is no cure for Achromatopsia. This condition is something you will have to live with for life. In this post, you will learn what you can do to help your vision when you have this condition. Adapting to achromatopsia can enable patients to live without limitations, however, having an improvement of vision in the future through gene therapy might open up their lives even more.
In this post, Jane Olver interviews a patient who has Achromatopsia. Discover how this disease affects a Londoner's lifestyle and how much it affects her vision.
You may have achromatopsia if as a child you found that you could see a lot better in subdued light. With achromatopsia, you have no colour vision. You are sensitive to light (photophobia), and you have the presence of nystagmus (shaking of the eyes). In this post, we discuss diagnosis and what will happen when you see Professor Michaelides.
Jane Olver welcomes you to Clinica London, the private clinic that helps you with your eyes and skin problems. Since the opening of the clinic in January 2011, we've introduced many new consultants, developments and skin and eye treatments helping us to offer more and more options for our patients.
The eye is one of the most complex structures in the human body. It is made up of many different parts, in this post, we explain how these parts work together to form the fascinating eye anatomy many of us take for granted.

Learning that you may have a retinitis pigmentosa can be quite a shock. In this post, we aim to prepare you for when you meet Professor Michel Michaelides at Clinica London. He will be able to advise you on the inheritance patterns, clinical risks and what to expect with respect to progression of the disease. He will also give you advice about what we can do to help you.
One of the exciting new advances on the horizon for the previously untreatable blinding condition known as Retinitis Pigmentosa is gene therapy. In this blog post, we will talk about studies currently ongoing in the United Kingdom.
In this post, we discuss the associated conditions you may develop if you have Retinitis Pigmentosa, how the disease may change your lifestyle, and how to deal with night blindness, an early symptom of the condition.
In this post, we'll discuss the Retinitis Pigmentosa which is the general name given to a group of inherited retinal conditions that lead to the same gradual and progressive reduction in vision. Retinitis Pigmentosa is a genetic condition that often presents in children or young adults, but can also present for the first time later in life. s a condition that affects young people. Parents genetically pass the disease on to their children, which we try to describe in this post.
