Abstract

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetic disorder occurring in the retina. This disorder affects the day to day activities of a man by causing degeneration of the retinal cells disrupting normal vision. But complete cure for this RP has not been discovered so far. In this paper I have discussed about the actual pathophysiology of RP and the interesting research that going on that is taking the researchers closer to the complete cure for this disorder.
