This article aims to collect all the cures for retinitis pigmentosa found on the internet in a single list.
A way to do you a favor and avoid browsing through a myriad of websites.
If you ended on this webpage you are probably looking for a cure for yourself or for a friend of yours, or for a close relative. In any case directly or indirectly you are involved with retinitis pigmentosa.
I know. It is difficult to accept this disease and above all to surrender to the fact that there is no cure. They told you so many, but you insist on not believing.
How is it possible that man, the same man who went to the moon, at the bottom of the abysses of the oceans, the same who built long bridges, high skyscrapers, the same that found the cure for the most deadly diseases, has not yet found a way to stop the death of photoreceptors, so small, that you did not even know you had them until they told you: you have retinitis pigmentosa, your visual field is shrinking, your visual acuity is getting worse and it is possible that this will lead to total loss of sight.
What a blow!
We’ve all been there. All of us retinopaths. I’ve been there too.

There are no univocal scientific confirmations. Each of these cures or presumed ones could have given benefits in specific cases and in particular conditions. In each of these treatments, placebo effect, psychological factors, environmental conditions, diet, age, … are very important factors.
The treatments accepted and shared by scientific circles are mainly in the experimental state
THERE IS NO CONFIRMED CURE AT GLOBAL LEVEL AND PROVEN AS SURE .
