About Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is the name given to a group of inherited conditions of the eye that all lead to a gradual progressive reduction in vision.  Difficulties with night vision and peripheral vision are the first things that are noticed.  Later reading, colour and central vision are affected.  The age at which symptoms start is variable as is the rate of deterioration.

There is no known cure or treatment.

RP Fighting Blindness is a charity funding vital research to find a cure and support those who are affected.  We are grateful for their assistance in the making of this film.
