Vision Loss

Progressive Peripheral Vision Loss

Vision loss from Retinitis Pigmentosa often happens slowly. The pictures below show varying stages of peripheral vision loss. By the time I was diagnosed at age 16, I was already in the moderate vision loss stage. 4 years later, I am now legally blind with only 9Âș of vision.
