Eye Branching reticulated retinal pattern

A 31-year-old man has increasing difficulty seeing at night, but has no problems with his vision during the day. Three years later, his daytime visual acuity also is decreasing. Funduscopic examination shows a branching reticulated pattern to the retina. The optic disc appears pale and waxy, and there is attenuation of retinal blood vessels. These findings are most characteristic of what condition?
(A) Macular degeneration
(B) Hypertensive retinopathy
(C) Retinitis pigmentosa
(D) Proliferative retinopathy
(E) Arteriosclerotic retinopathy
