I am a mum of a son with RP. It is really difficult I know and I felt there was no information for me or anyone to help us come to terms with this. There is no generaly available treatment yet but there is huge amounts of research being done with promising areas of results . These are in area of implants and the use of stem cells. This disease progresses slowly in most cases so nothing should happen too quickly. There are other problems which occur i.e. cataracts are common. Just help your daughter to cope with whats happening and keep hoping for and supporting a breakthrough, remember she has time.
I am a third year medical student. I am sorry to say that little can be done. In case where retina gets detached, it can be attached back. You can also give good Vit A supply to your child. Best will be to get it operated.
I think the person who posts such kind of problems should also describe these as there are thousands of diseases and all look alike, what do other say on this? If I happen to come across of such conditions I may come back on post, for now no help....

My retiinologist said I have retinal scarring which often happens in older people. He said it is caused by the vitreous gel on the retina breaking loose leaving a little bit of the gel behind on the retina and causing blurriness when reading. I cannot seem to find anything on this subject on the internet. Are you familiar with this condition?
My 31/2 month pre-mature daughter was recently taken to the hospital due to bleeding around her brain from her retinal cord connected to her left eye.
