Symptoms of Stargardt Disease:
The most common symptom of Stargardt disease is the variable, often slow loss of central vision in both eyes.

Vision loss may decrease slowly at first, then worsen rapidly until it levels off. Most people with Stargardt disease will end up with 20/200 vision or worse.
Causes of Stargardt Disease:
Mutations in a gene called ABCA4 are the most common cause of Stargardt disease. This gene makes a protein that clears typically away vitamin A byproducts inside photoreceptors. Cells that lack the ABCA4 protein accumulate clumps of lipofuscin, a fatty substance that forms yellowish flecks.
Mutations in the ABCA4 gene are also associated with other retinal dystrophies including cone dystrophy, cone-rod dystrophy, and retinitis pigmentosa, a severe form of retinal degeneration.
