What is Retinitis Pigmentosa?
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a rare degenerative genetic eye disease that causes acute vision loss. Retinitis pigmentosa is usually inherited from one or both parents, however, in rare cases, it can also develop new as a result of a miscoding during DNA division. Miscoding of proteins in one of the more than 300 genes associated causes RP. Symptoms usually appear gradually and mostly begin in childhood.
