This study evaluates the effect of perceptive
training on the visual performance and the emotional
state of people with restriction in contrast sensitivity
(CS), such as those with retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
The outcomes showed significant progress, which
suggests that the program could be a helpful addition
to RP rehabilitation, improving performance and
autonomy in daily life tasks and emotional state. The
program could also be useful in the rehabilitation of
other people with deficits in CS, alleviating the repercussions
that these problems have for performing
daily activities and well-being.
