R.P. Retinitis Pigmentosa Annika Wistrand Hello, my name is Annika Wistrand and I am 19 years old. I was born with a disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa (R.P.). The ophthalmologist wrongly diagnosed me as strabismal and I received eye-patch and glasses for farsightedness. Not until 14 years of age it appeared to me that something was wrong. Earlier I had been able to read a paper without wearing glasses and it was terrifying to realise how much my visual sight had deteriorated.

Greg Roggeman's Point of View Hello there, I am Greg Roggeman and this is my little corner of the web. My wife Julie, our two cats, and I live in Wausau, Wisconsin. Because of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP,) I can no longer see a normal computer monitor, and thus use a speech synthesizer, along with screen reading software to read the text to me. This is why you won't be seeing any pictures here any time soon. It is also why I prefer to use LYNX to browse the web.
