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.

 

Further information about RP

How we can help with RP

Our Electrical stimulation therapy offers a chance to positively influence the progression of the disease. With our worldwide unique retinal implant blind people have the chance to regain a degree of visual perception.

Retina Implant AG

What in the mid-90s was still a bold vision of medical-technological research is reality today: a camera chip, so small that it can be implanted under the retina in the eye.
Retina Implant AG develops and manufactures such implants and therapies for people with hereditary degenerative eye conditions. Our motivation is to help people, who until now were losing sight and had no therapy option, with innovative medical technology and to open “a window of hope” for them.
