Eye disease

Two of my children have achromotopsia and degenerative rod disease. Are there any surgeries to correct this?

Hi,
How are you? Both children with achromotopsia and degenrative rod disease needs to be evaluated directly by an eye specialist for proper management. Currently, achromatopsia,  a non-progressive and hereditary visual disorder  has no definite cure.  It is also recommended they should be checked for refractive errors to improve vision.Take care and do keep us posted.
