Since 1984, now we have geared up satellite tv for pc Symposia on Retinal Degenerations which are held along with the biennial foreign Congress of Eye examine. The timing and site of our Retinal Degeneration Symposia have all owed scientists and clinicians from all over the world to convene and current their intriguing new findings. The symposia were prepared to permit abundant time for discussions and one-on-one interactions in a peaceful atmos­ phere, the place foreign friendships and collaborations might be demonstrated. The II foreign Symposium (also referred to as the Sendai Symposium on Retinal Degeneration) used to be held in 1986 in Sendai, Japan, at the party of the retirement of Kat­ suyoshi Mizuno as Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology at Tohoku scientific institution On October 5-9, 1996, we again to Sendai, the place the VII overseas Symposium was once held on the Miyagi Zao inn lodge within the attractive Mt.

Vingolo, Andrea Perdicchi, Renato Forte. Patrizia Del Beato, Luigi Pannarale, and Roberto Grenga Inherited Retinal Disorders Center Chair of Ophthalmology University "La Sapienza" of Rome INTRODUCTION In Retinitis Pigmentosa the progressive photoreceptor degeneration determines severe functional loss and visual impairment and consequently retinal sensitivity damage.

For the initial test, 23% of the RP patients had normal visual field areas. No attempt was made to compare visual field loss rates across genetic subtypes. Massof (1990) computed an analysis of the dynamics of prospectively-measured visual field loss in 172 repeatedly tested typical RP patients, concluding that the first order dynamics of the progressive retinal degeneration is the same in all types of RP and that the visual loss in RP, regardless of subtype, progresses at a very predictable rate, following an exponential decay function.
