Retinoschisis is an X-linked recessive eye disease leading to moderate to severe visual handicap at late adulthood. Affected males usually have mild visual impairment during childhood, often discovered at routine visus controls at schools. Some patients may stay symptomless till adulthood. Most patients retain reasonable vision until fifth or sixth decades when some deterioration usually takes place. Total blindness is an exception.
