IT is generally felt that heavy sunlight exposure is not good for RP patients. Thus wearing a hat, staying out of the sun as much as practicle, wearing sunglasses that block UV, infrared light are reasonable suggestions.

There are companies that make special glasses for RP but there is not good scientific evidence that these do any good or are worth the expense.
