What is best disease?

Best disease (or vitelliform macular degeneration) is a genetic condition you are born with, although it does not usually start to affect your vision until later in life. Best disease affects the macula, the part of your retina at the back of your eye, which you use when reading, writing or watching TV. There is no current treatment for best disease although research is on-going in the area of gene therapy which may lead to a treatment in the future.
