Abstract: Normally, postnatal development of the human retina involves centrifugal displacement of the inner retinal layers (IRLs) from the fovea, centripetal migration of the cone photoreceptors into the fovea, and elongation of the photoreceptors with age. It is not clear whether retinal development in infants and young children with achromatopsia (ACHM) occurs in a similar way and whether any retinal changes that occur are progressive in early childhood.
