Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
There are a large number of conditions that can be called Retinal Dystrophies. Many of them run in families. The diagnosis and treatment of these diseases is best done by a ophthalmologist who sub-specializes in diseases of the retina.....this is what I do :)
Was your condition discovered by an ophthalmologist or an optometrist? What kind of symptoms are you experiencing? If you can tell me a little bit more about what is going on in your case I will be happy to try and give you some specific information about retinal dystrophies that would be considered in the differential diagnosis for you.
Here is an excellent article on retinal dystrophies in general:
