I'm 15 and in february I found out I have retinitis pigmentosa.
I was wondering if anyone else has it and how they cope with it.
I went for my permit today and couldn't get it cause I didn't pass the eye test.
If you have it do you drive at all?
Any answers would be appreciated.
Answers:   Hi Laura!
I was diagnosed 4 years ago, when I was 24. Nowadays, I'm able to drive a car: during the day I don't have any difficulties, though during the night I prefer my friends do that, but I think I'll give up sooner than later (no more than 5 years). How do I cope with it? You can guess it. It's sometime stressful, more at night: I need help from the others when I have to enter into a bar because the darkness, or walking in the street when there is no enough light. I'm starting to find some troubles at reading and... that's all. I would be glad if we could share our own experiences and information about new treatments or news related.
