Symptomes and handicap
In addition to total color blindness, extreme sensitivity to light and visual impairment (visual <= 0.1) are the handicaps of people with achromatopsia. Because of the strong sensitivity to glare, the congenital visual impairment is also called dayblindness. Achromatopsia is a very rare disease.
The film “ACHROMATOPSIE – LIFE WITHOUT COLORS” informs about the very rare visual impairment. Affected people report on problems and possibilities in everyday life. A doctor talks about diagnosis and support.
