Only type I (the adult type) of Gaucher is seen in Ashkenazi Jews. This type is far more compatible with life and children may live to the second decade of their life, while in Nieman pick they usually die before the second birthday.
The other types of Gaucher (the infantile and the juvenile) are as killing as Niemman but they are not seen in Ashkenazi Jews
In any case Gaucher does not affect the eyes with cherry red spots
