LHON is a debilitating disease that leads to quick vision loss concomitantly or successively. It mostly impacts young adolescent males and brings tremendous physical and psychological stress to 
the patients. 

There has been no effective treatment for the disease, so far. Fortunately, with the advance of 
new technology, gene therapy emerges as an effective and safe treatment.

On the occasion of the 28th National Eye Care Day, we spoke with Dr. Marcela Ciccioli to get her perspectives on the treatment, patient management and gene therapy of LHON.
