In brief: Decreases vision.
Cicatricial retinopathy causes scar tissue in the retina, which is the neural layer of the eye that is used for vision.
Usually such retinal changes impinge on vision. A pediatric ophthalmologist (eye doctor) can help assess the extent of the damage and what visual effects to expect and whether any treatment can be helpful.
