Question

Answer
Dear Shipra.

Bulls eye maculopathy is a heriditary and genetic disorder.
However, it is also known to be associated with other conditions such as cone dystrophy, Stargardt’s disease or due to medications such as chloroquine.


I would recommend that you seek the care of a retinal specialist to determine the cause and treatment possibilities.

Sankara Netralaya is one of the more advanced retinal institutes in Chennai. You may write to them for advise.
