There is, unfortunately, no definitive treatment for cone dystrophy, worldwide, as of today. However, rapid advances in genetic engineering and stem cell research will certainly open newer and exciting modalities of treatment for similar diseases of the retina in the future.
As of today, a patient diagnosed with cone dystrophy may benefit from genetic counseling.
