Clinical and Experimental Optometry

Author: Black, A., Lovie-Kitchin, J.E., Woods, R. L., Arnold, N., Byrnes, J., Murrish, J.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1997


In this study, the authors investigated the relationship between clinical vision measures and mobility performance under different illumination levels for subjects with retinitis pigamentosa. The study concluded that people with retinitis pigamentosa (RP) have worse mobility than people with normal vision, more so under reduced illumination levels. Visual field extent was the strongest predictor of mobility performance.
