Visual training and emotional state of people with retinitis pigmentosa

Helena Chacón-López, PhD, et al.

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.
