Abstract

The definition of hereditary retinal diseases includes heterogeneous conditions leading to significant visual impairment. Great strides are being made in the management of many of these dystrophies, with many ongoing trials aiming to ascertain if a pharmacological therapy can reverse or at least stop the natural course of these disorders. In addition, good results have also been achieved in the treatment of typical complications of inherited dystrophies such as cystoid macular edema and choroidal neovascularization.
