Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Unfortunately, there really are not any effective treatments for cone-rod dystrophies at this current time. There are stem cell studies going on in humans with macular degeneration, currently, that at first blush, appear somewhat promising, but they have only been done on two humans, and only for macular degeneration. However, hopefully within the next decade or so, there may be more advancement in this area that can benefit your mother.
