Bilateral symmetry of disorders of vision is examined in 60 typical patients with retinitis pigmentosa. The authors observed a very high degree of interocular congruence in the patterns of both kinetic visual field defects and threshold profiles and in abnormalities of foveal color discrimination and visual acuity. Abnormalities of foveal color vision are highly correlated with the extent of visual field loss.
