Ozone Therapy for Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)
Traditionally, patients with RP have been told that there is no hope and that peripheral field of vision will continue to progressively constrict until all vision is eventually extinguished. RP patients anticipate blindness.
A treatment recently developed in Cuba whereby 200 cc’s of blood is collected, ozonated, and is reinfused into the patient for 15 consecutive days was found to increase contrast sensitivity, enhance color perception, augment glare recovery, and facilitate function in low light. If repeated every four to six months, it is possible that progression of the disease can be slowed or stabilized.
