What is meant by retinal pigment epithelium degeneration.
What is meant by retinal pigment changes?
There is no specific treatment for retinitis pigmentosa as this is a genetically linked disease and can have expression at various levels. The patient may benefit by some dietary adjustments (by taking a copper free diet) and by taking oral Vit A 15,000 i.u. daily of 50,000 i.u. twice a week on a regular basis. The reason one eye sees better than the other is based on the retinal status, the extent and progression of the disease and whether the central retina and optic nerve are involved in the disease process or not. Unfortunately, surgery on the retina is not possible. Field expanders (a form of low vision devise) may help her to see a little better.

If retinal is dead as you meaning totally functionless ther is no way to treat it. . There is no way to reverse or to treat retinal degeneration, or the total loss of vision that inevitably accompanies it. Progressive retinal atrophy will eventually result in blindness ..

Hello, Thanks for the query. This leads to double vision. But in case of diabetic origin, it usually recovers in about 4 to6 weeks. Usually Methylcobalamine supplements are used in support. Thanks.

A more recent use of retroreflectors, helping to provide secure communications between two stations in line of sight, is modeled after the combination of tapetum lucidum If your vision is not possible you can see if a transplant can help
