This BCM Registry® is an online Patient Registry dedicated to a rare genetic retinal disease, Blue Cone Monochromacy. The Registry was created by BCM Families Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit patient-led organization with the mission to cure BCM.


The Purpose of the Registry is to collect data over time from patients with BCM from all over the world. The Registry aims to increase knowledge about:

  • Clinical features of BCM;
  • Natural course of BCM;
  • Long-term outcomes of BCM;
  • And ultimately help find a cure for BCM.

Inclusion Criteria

Adults and children with BCM may participate in the BCM Registry. You must have genetic confirmation of BCM. During registration, you have to upload your genetic test report.

Privacy and Security

Your privacy is very important to us. We are a patient organization, created by families affected by BCM, and we know that the privacy and security of your personal data are extremely important.

You may decide at any time to limit access to your/your child's data to only BCMFF and your/your child's own doctor. If you change your mind and want to completely remove your/your child's data from the Registry, you can do so without any explanation.


The BCM Registry is patient-powered. You enroll yourself or your child and select the name of your doctor, who will check and validate all medical data.
