We are open up until Friday 21 December at 5.30pm and then closed over Christmas and New Year. Re-opening at 9am on Wednesday 2 January. We would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

WARNING OF BUILDING WORKS

We´re excited to let you know that we have started work on an extension to our practice. As a result, our car park spaces will be very limited until the New Year. Please allow extra time to make it to your appointment. There is a public car park directly opposite the practice where you can park for 30mins / 1hour or more.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa is a hereditary disease where a specific gene defect causes the cells in the Retina of the eye to misfire.

There isn’t a defined cure or treatment, however, many find the onset to be quite slow. The symptoms begin with central vision losses, but there are cases where the outside of vision can deteriorate slowly creating a tunnel vision effect.

Retinitis-Pigmentosa

Bad vision in environments with dim lighting at the later stages in life are considered early symptoms of RP. These can be connected to other eye problems which in some cases are called syndromes. The loss of hearing along with RP is called the Usher’s Syndrome.
