Introducing RP Fighting Blindness
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a disease of the eye that leads to loss of vision and blindness. RP Fighting Blindness works hard to stimulate and fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure and support those affected. You can learn lots more using the links across the top of this page.
To stimulate and support high quality medical research
with the aim of increasing scientific understanding of retinitis pigmentosa (and related conditions) and finding treatments or cures for the condition that, when developed, are accessible to anyone affected, and to identify or provide good quality and universally-accessible information and support services
for people affected.
We aspire to a world in which people with RP will have access to treatments or a cure and will not lose their sight.
The charity is committed to focus on its objectives, transparency in all matters, collaboration with other organisations, fair business practices and equality of opportunity.
