Purposes of the Achromatopsia Network Publications

This work was begun in 1994 as a result of the efforts of a woman with achromatopsia who decided to begin publishing books and other materials about achromatopsia. Following are the goals of this publishing project:
  1. To gather and share information about achromatopsia and about the many different ways people cope with the problems and special needs associated with this rare vision disorder
  2. To promote awareness and education about achromatopsia, with a special emphasis on accomplishing this goal among professionals who provide services and products to the visually impaired

Two books, Understanding and Coping with Achromatopsia and Living with Achromatopsia, bring together the basic information that has been shared since this work began in January, 1994.
