Congenital Stationary Night Blindness (CSNB) consists of a group of eye disorders clinically characterized by vision impairment under dim light conditions, nystagmus, refractive error, or retinal changes. Different types of disorder can be inherited in an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive manner.
