Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetic disorder that causes vision loss and blindness. The retina—a thin tissue that lines the back of the eyeball—has cells which are light sensitive; these cells, called photoreceptors, allow us to see with the information they collect about visual images being sent to the brain. With RP, the photoreceptors, rods, and cones are affected and progressively die. This leads initially to night-blindness; then, loss of peripheral vision causes tunnel vision and finally, legal blindness.
