Leber Congenital Amaurosis

Leber Congenital Amaurosis

Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) appears at birth or in very young children. It is an inherited disease that can have quite severe vision loss. The level of loss varies between individuals; some affected individuals can have little or no light perception. Leber congenital amaurosis was first described in 1869 by the German ophthalmologist Theodor Karl Gustav von Leber, which is where the disease gets its name.
