Retinitis Pigmentosa at a glance:
Also known as rod cone dystrophy, retinitis pigmentosa (RP) refers to a group of inherited diseases that cause degeneration of the retina. When photoreceptor cells in the retina deteriorate, people with RP experience a gradual decline in vision. There is currently no cure for retinitis pigmentosa.  Research studies have shown that HBOT can stabilize vision loss in people with retinitis pigmentosa.
