This article reviews the consequences of Retinitis Pigmentosa, a retinal degenerative disease with progressive reduction of the visual field, visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and night blindness. Retinitis Pigmentosa is addressed from both a psychological and an educational standpoint, focusing on the impact on learning, emotional well-being, and the social relationships of young people and adolescents. We examine problems affected people have to face and offer suggestions and strategies to professionals working with individuals and family members.
