Ask Dr. Gott 9/20

Retina disease gets worse with age

    DEAR DR. GOTT: My 31-year-old son has retinitis pigmentosa. His sight has been decreasing little by little. We know it is an incurable disease. Has science made any inroads into this field? Is there is a place in the United States or Europe where they are doing any trials? Do you have any suggestions, other than vitamin A, on how to prolong his vision?
