CATARACTS AND RP

It is not unusual for people with RP to develop a cataract, a haziness of the lens of the eye. When cataracts significantly interfere with vision, it may be advisable to remove them surgically. Whether surgery improves vision often depends on how far the retinal changes have advanced. The usefulness and implications of surgery should be discussed with an ophthalmologist.
