Retinitis pigmentosa is considered a serious eye condition caused most common hereditary retinal degeneration. Progressive causes decreased vision due to the death of photoreceptors, eye retina cells. So it can end up causing blindness. Its first symptoms are lack of capacity to adapt to the dark nocturna- blindness and decreased visual field, causing tunnel vision. As the disease progresses, symptoms worsen, so it is important to know the development of the disease in close relatives to know how it will affect the patient. Although there is currently no specific treatment for this disease, consumption of vitamins, minerals and other ingredients may help slow its evolution. In addition, vision therapy is also advised, conducting exercises monitored by an ophthalmologist to improve the visual conditions of the patient.
