of degenerative genetic diseases that affect the retina.  RP causes
progressive vision loss, and eventually blindness.  The RP list is
intended for RP sufferers, their friends and relatives, and anyone
with an interest in RP.  Discussions are welcome on any subject
relevant to RP, with an emphasis on issues specific to low vision and
degenerative vision; issues relevant to blindness in general are
better kept on existing blindness-related lists and newsgroups.
Medical aspects of RP are also of interest, but are not the main
focus of the list.
