Choroideremia (CHM) is a rare inherited disorder that causes progressive vision loss, ultimately leading to complete blindness. The first symptom is generally night-blindness, followed by vision loss in the mid-periphery. These “blind spots” appear in an irregular ring, only leaving patches of peripheral vision, while central vision is still maintained.
