Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is actually a group of inherited diseases that affect the retina, causing a degeneration of the photoreceptor cells. When these light-capturing cells degenerate, patients experience loss of night vision, colour vision and peripheral vision.
Eventually tunnel vision may occur. While inherited, it may skip generations and therefore is difficult to track. Any member of a family that has a history of retinal disease should be tested by an eye care professional.
