Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.

I reviewed your history.

Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by degeneration of rod cells of retina resulting in progressive loss of vision especially in dim light or night.
There is no satisfactory treatment for this condition.

However few dietary supplements are known to reduce the progression.
I usually use antioxidants, vitamin A and omega 3 fatty acids for long time.
These three are of proven advantage and can be used in retinitis pigmentosa.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
