What Is Retinitis Pigmentosa?

Retinitis pigmentosa is an eye disease in which there is damage to the retina. The retina is the layer of tissue at the back of the inner eye that converts light images to nerve signals and sends them to the brain.

Causes


Retinitis Pigmentosa can run in families. The disorder can be caused by a number of genetic defects. The cells controlling night vision (rods) are most likely to be affected. However, in some cases, retinal cone cells are damaged the most. The main sign of the disease is the presence of dark deposits in the retina.

The main risk factor is a family history of retinitis pigmentosa. It is an uncommon condition affecting about 1 in 4,000 people in the United States.

Symptoms

Symptoms often first appear in childhood, but severe vision problems do not usually develop until early adulthood.
Decreased vision at night or in low light
Loss of side (peripheral) vision, causing “tunnel vision”
Loss of central vision (in advanced cases)

Conventional Treatments

There is no effective treatment for this condition. Wearing sunglasses to protect the retina from ultraviolet light may help preserve vision.

Some studies have suggested that treatment with antioxidants (such as high doses of vitamin A palmitate) may slow the disease. However, taking high doses of vitamin A can cause serious liver problems. The benefit of treatment has to be weighed against risks to the liver.

Several clinical trials are in progress to investigate new treatments for retinitis pigmentosa, including the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA.
Outlook (Prognosis)

The disorder will continue to progress, although slowly. Complete blindness is uncommon.

Possible Complications

Peripheral and central loss of vision will eventually occur.
Patients with retinitis pigmentosa often develop cataracts at an early age, or swelling of the retina (macular edema). Cataracts can be removed if they contribute to vision loss.
