There are many low vision diseases, but the most common are: 

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP),

Ushers Syndrome,

Macular Degeneration also known as AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration),

Glaucoma and Cataracts.

 

We will focus on the degenerative eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). 

Retinitis Pigmentosa is an eye condition that affects the retina of the individual. 

Retinitis Pigmentosa people are a more and more larger population in The United States, Canada, Great Britain, Colombia, Spain, The Middle East and Australia just to name a few. 

Retinitis Pigmentosa is an eye disease that makes you lose your sight progressively. Retinitis Pigmentosa people says having Retinitis Pigmentosa is not that bad but when you start losing night vision and you become night blinded, then it becomes a real issue, a real problem. 

For any Retinitis Pigmentosa person, the independence is a key element, so usually they search for Retinitis Pigmentosa friends, Retinitis Pigmentosa pals, people like them who can understand them better than their families does, they search for advice and tips on how to keep their independence intact. 

To make RP friends is not easy, because there are not many places Online where you can meet Retinitis Pigmentosa people, however now there is a place where everyone suffering from Retinitis Pigmentosa can come and meet others with their same eye disease (RP). 

There is a lot of research going on regarding Retinitis Pigmentosa, it has truly become an important focus on scientistsí work in The United States and abroad. 

RP as it is a very complex and devastating disease, it has now been considered as a top priority for important organizations such as The Foundation Fighting Blindness that fights to find a cure for all eye diseases that can cause blindness. 

There are many types of Retinitis Pigmentosa and therefore many variables come into play when thinking how will ever be a cure for all types of Retinitis Pigmentosa. 

Fortunately things look brighter and brighter every day with hi-tech devices in development right now such as the Chip that has been implanted in a few patients eyes and that promises good results in a few years, making people who have lost most of their sight, to be able to see shapes, colours and even the whole face of a person. 

And there are more things, Stem Cell Research, and the surgery that is performed in Colombia, Cuba and a few places more where they help improve the sight of the damaged eyes but with NO guarantees of such improvements. What we know is there are some successful cases in Colombia and Cuba but there are also cases where no improvement is made so we can not recommend such surgery at this time. 

As eye doctors say, there needs to be a scientific study published on a major Medical Journal with thousands of cases shown there to demonstrate the effectiveness of any surgery for RP patients. 
We have also heard of Ozone therapy but that is also not a therapy we can recommend, you need to be very careful with everything you do to your eye sight, we know that if you have a limited vision and you need any kind of help, then you must try anything, but it has risks and some may include becoming blind or losing more sight after such procedures.
