PURPOSE To measure the rates of visual acuity, visual field, and ERG loss in patients with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa due to RPGR mutations and to determine whether these rates differ from those of patients with dominant retinitis pigmentosa due to RHO mutations. METHODS Snellen visual acuities, Goldmann visual field areas (V4e white test light), and 30 Hz (cone) full-field ERG amplitudes were recorded for an average of 9.8 years in 113 patients with RPGR mutations. After censoring data to… CONTINUE READING
