However this only provides the edges of what a person is trying to look at, and the focus (and colour strength) in this area is poor. Whatever the person tries to bring to the centre of their vision, to see more clearly, simply becomes dark or lost. Any activity that requires detailed, clear vision is compromised, and in the late stages of the disease sight loss is so severe that patients are offered registration as partially sighted or blind. Retinitis Pigmentosa- is the name given to a group of hereditary diseases of the retina - the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. About 25,000 families in the UK are affected.
The vessels may stop growing or develop abnormally. These vessels are still very fragile and may leak causing bleeding in the back of the eye. Scar tissue may develop and pull the retina from the inner surface of the eye, eye socket. This disorder is one of the leading causes of visual loss in infants and can lead to lifelong visual impairment and permanent blindness. Other risk factors includeanemia, blood transfusions, respiratory distress, breathing difficulties, and the overall health of the infant.
Age-related Macular Disease is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over 60. It occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. The retina is the light sensing nerve tissue at the back of the eye. Because the disease develops as a person ages, it is often referred to as the age-related macular degenerating (AMD). Although AMD can be a significant visual disability, it is almost never completely blinding.
