Macular dystrophy pigment change in macula of teenager

Posted , 3 users are following.

My son has a circle shape of pigment change in one eye with normal vision. Dr called it a pattern dystrophy. Everything on internet says hereditary but does it have to be hereditary? So scared due to what all I have read. He's 13. Has anyone had this and what's the prognosis, I hope it's some benign spot that can heal.
