Retinitis Pigmentosa and Education Issues
Brown, Thomas J.
Online Submission
Retinitis Pigmentosa includes a number of inherited diseases which usually result in blindness. The disease is progressive in nature and begins with the deterioration of cells in the eye responsible for peripheral vision. As the condition worsens there is a gradual loss of peripheral vision and night blindness. Proper educational planning requires a thorough understanding of the nature of the condition and its psychological effects.
