PURPOSE Mutations in the coding sequence of the L and M opsin genes are often associated with X-linked cone dysfunction (such as Bornholm Eye Disease, BED), though the exact color vision phenotype associated with these disorders is variable. We examined individuals with L/M opsin gene mutations to clarify the link between color vision deficiency and cone dysfunction. METHODS We recruited 17 males for imaging. The thickness and integrity of the photoreceptor layers were evaluated using… CONTINUE READING
