What is retinitis pigmentosa (RP)?

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is the name given to a diverse group of inherited eye disorders. These eye conditions affect the part of your eye called the retina.

RP causes permanent changes to your vision, but how much and how quickly can vary dramatically from person to person. These retinal changes can affect your side vision and your central vision. Some people with RP may become blind but most people will keep some useful vision well into old age.
