In brief: Progressive Loss
Signs of rd are those seen by examining eye doctor: subretinal fluid, retinal tear, pigment cells in vitreous, and pvd.
The symptoms that a patient experiences are progressive loss or "greying" of vision which may involve the central vision. This may be proceeded by flashes and floaters.

In brief: Vision loss
Vision loss that typically starts in the periphery and moves toward the central vision is the most specific symptom. If there is any questions, best to see an Ophthalmologist, or even better a retina specialist as soon as possible.
