The Juliette RP Vision Foundation, A Retinitis Pigmentosa Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2008.

What is Retinitis Pigmentosa?

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) refers to a group of inherited diseases causing retinal degeneration. The retina lines the back inside wall of the eye and is responsible for capturing images from the visual field. People with RP experience a gradual decline in their vision because photoreceptor cells (rods and cones) die.
