- Must have CEP290-related retinal degeneration caused by a compound heterozygous or homozygous intron 26 c.2991+1655A>G mutation.
- Must have visual acuity no better than 20/60 in each eye, but no worse than light perception.
- Good general health.
This study will occur at the Casey Eye Institute in Portland, OR, and at other sites around the world. Participation in this study will last about 1 year. There are 6 required visits in the study. Each study visit will involve functional vision tests and dilated eye exams.
