We help people who suffer from retinitis pigmentosa to retain their residual vision for longer or regain a certain degree of useful sight.

Your Expert for retinitis pigmentosa

What is retinitis pigmentosa?

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) refers to a heterogeneous group of hereditary retinal diseases, which cause the gradual degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells in the eye.
