X-Linked Retinoschisis
Signs and Symptoms

A decline in central vision is the hallmark symptom of X-linked retinoschisis. Other symptoms include night blindness, an inability of both eyes to focus on an object (strabismus) and roving, involuntary eye movements (nystagmus). In about half of the cases, peripheral (side) vision is also affected.
