10/12/2019, Delhi: Retinitis Pigmentosa is also known as rod-cone dystrophy refers to a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the vision of the eye and may eventually lead to the loss in eyesight. The genetic mutation causes the breakdown and loss of cells in the retina, as a result, the retina gets damaged which eventually lead to the loss in eyesight. The symptoms of Retinitis Pigmentosa often begin in childhood; it starts with decreased vision at night or in low light and loss of side vision. The harmful mutation of more than one out of fifty genes responsible for eyesight is usually involved in this disorder.

As of yet, no treatment procedure can individually cure the disorder; but the gradual progress of the disease can be controlled by following some procedures. And there are some procedures that can be used to stop further deterioration of the eye and preserve the vision that is left. Some of the preventive procedures are:

Vitamin A Palmitate: Use of high dose Vitamin A can help to slow down the progression of Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Retinal Implant: In the case of complete vision loss, retinal implant surgery is the only solution to restore the vision of the patient. 

Sunglasses: Sunglasses is not a cure to the disease even can’t help to reduce the growth rate, but a sunglass can help the patient in seeing. The use of sunglass can help to avoid further damage to the retina by avoiding the harmful ultraviolet ray of the sun.

Acetazolamide: This is a medication that may require in the final stage of the disease to reduce swelling and improve the vision.
