Retinitis pigmentosa or RP is a condition which is not treatable and the vision gets diminished during the course of time, as far as wearing of Contact Lens is concerned you can wear it , it is not a contraindication but it depends upon your motivation & vision as wearing can be a difficulty due to decreased vision
