Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI
Does everyone with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI have vision loss?
Eye problems that cause vision loss are a common problem for people with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI, but there are some people with this condition who will not have vision loss. The most common eye problems in Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI are clouding of the cornea from the buildup of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), or diseases where the main nerve in the eye, the optic nerve, is damaged (glaucoma). These eye problems can cause problems with vision or blindness.
