Upon typing the above introduction, my browser underlined the word Achromatopsia, signifying its misspelling. That pretty much sums up why I’m writing a blog, putting my thoughts, experiences and what I’ve learned out into the world. I believe there is a hole in the information, or sharing of actual real world application and learned techniques of someone with my condition.

I have had Rod Monochromatism since birth (as is true with all cases). This is a specific term for a more common eye condition called Achromatopsia. It wasn’t until later in life I learned about the different types of Achromatopsia. This lack of knowledge of my condition or real world application of its side effects absolutely made things harder for me (and my parents) than they needed to be. There are simple, but practiced, techniques that can greatly improve the life of someone with my condition and I want to share those with you whether you are here because you have the same condition, or you know someone with Achromatopsia. Understanding what the Achromat can and can’t see is vital to understanding the different aspects of functioning within normal life.
