YouTuber Chandler Hallow is a prominent personality famed for his appearances on the MrBeast YouTube channel. Chandler is a fan favorite. He has been affiliated with MrBeast, aka Jimmy Donaldson, since 2017.
Born on December 3, 1998, in Greenville, North Carolina, Chandler was born with a genetic disorder called achromatopsia. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, “Achromatopsia is a rare, bilateral inherited retinal degeneration affecting all three types of cone photoreceptor cells that results in reduced visual acuity, photophobia, hemeralopia, and severe loss of color discrimination.”
Cone cells, that detect color, are sometimes completely absent or are extremely low in numbers in patients with achromatopsia. According to estimates, 1 in 30,000 people suffer from the disease. However, there is still no cure for the genetic condition. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, several researches have been conducted but there is still no approved treatment.
People who suffer from color blindness often perceive things as being in the colors black, white, and gray. In some cases, photophobia is also present. This condition is a sort of severe sensitivity to bright lights.
Chandler faces severe challenges due to his diagnosis of achromatopsia. However, he has risen above them and become a mainstay on the MrBeast channel.
