Optic Nerve Damage
The optic nerve transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. In humans, the optic nerve consists of approximately 1.5 million nerve fibers, originating from cells in the retina termed “retinal ganglion cells”.
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a heritable group of blinding diseases characterized by progressive peripheral vision loss and night vision difficulties. RP constitutes abnormalities in photoreceptor cells (rods and cones) and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) dystrophies caused by molecular defects in more than 40 different genes.
