Patient Comments: Retinitis Pigmentosa - Complications

Please discuss the complications associated with retinitis pigmentosa.

Comment from: tashia, 35-44 Male (Caregiver) Published: August 14

My husband has had retinitis pigmentosa since childhood. Now he is 35 years old and has lost 95% of his eyesight. Now we know that our son also has this serious disease. We are just speechless and helpless.
