Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a group of genetic sicknesses that affects the power of our retina to respond to light. This degenerative disease is the major causes behind loss of vision which is definitely slow but still it does happen. The commencement happens with starting to feel a significant reduction in night vision as well as loss of peripheral vision. If it goes untreated then you might end up with ultimately blindness, which will be quiet troublesome. The retina is the part of the eye that has sensing cells lined up at the back of your eye that can very well translate the light rays into actionable nerve impulses. These are the impulses that are sent out via the optic nerve to your brain, this is where a clear recognition is possible that makes it possible for us to identify images. With RP, the cells present in the retina which are called rods and cones tend to die. With the maximum types of RP, the rods- that are chiefly situated in the outer part of the retina and are the one that are accountable for all the outlying and night vision, are the ones to degenerate first. When the retina’s centrally-located conduits are the ones to be affected, the outcome is usually the loss of color which happens to be perception and the central vision.
Retinitis Pigmentosa is the genetic disorder which is an acquired issue and happens due to the transformations with about almost 50 qualities. These qualities are the ones to majorly convey the Guidelines that are best suited to make the proteins which are an essential requirement and happens to be present inside the photoreceptor cells present in the retina. A part of the change or transformation is the fact that inside the retina happens to be the qualities that are extreme and high quality which affects to an extent that the quality can’t make the necessary protein. Still there are other changes that lead to an unusual protein which doesn’t naturally work well and appropriately. In each of the three cases, the outcome is pretty harmful to the photoreceptors.
Stem cell treatment
The symptoms of the disorder can be relieved with utilizing the power of stem cells and also happens to give new optimism to the people who are suffering from this ailment. This is done by improving their efficacy. Patients who tend to suffer from diverse eye related disorders are the ones to be well treated by implanting the stem cells via retrobulbar or some other effective mode which works well and helps obtain a maximum retrieval. We are very vigilant and wish to contribute towards this new technology by employing impressive prospects of stem cells in treating several diseases.
Viezec is the one to be continually updating the knowledge as well as the technology that suits the unique stipulations of every patient. Our top priority stands to offer each comprehensive as well as spot-on treatment pattern that helps with maximum retrieval. As a part of our treatment, we acquire patient’s stem cell and work with it. We acquire them from two sources, Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) and Bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) are the major portion from where we acquire it. We understand that it is our work and duty to help you with leading your life in the best way possible.
It is the one that can be detected only after a thorough medical diagnosis. The symptoms often tend to begin with a decreased vision especially at night or during the times of low light as well as loss of side tunnel vision might also be a clear symptom of the disorder.
People who suffer the symptoms often complaint of
- Blurred Vision
- Inability to see clearly in dim light.
- Vision disorder
- Loss of vision
- Tunnel vision
Implantation Of Stem Cells: The stem cell implantation can be done in the following ways.
- Intravenous administration
- Intrathecal (lumber puncture)
- Liberation angioplasty
- Surgical administration for stroke
1. Do I need to habitually examine my eyes?
Yes, it is always sensible to check your eyes frequently. Young adults between the age group 20-39 should have their eye checkups after every 3-5 years. Whereas grown-ups between the age group 40-64 should have their eye checkups after every 2-4 years. In case of senior citizens above 65 years of age, ophthalmic visit has to be once a year. Regardless of age groups, some individuals congregated under the category of high risk adults should also visit ophthalmologist once a year such as folks with diabetes, strong family history of glaucoma, persons with AIDS, etc.
2. Will working at a computer screen or sitting close to TV screen harm my eyes?
No, there is not yet any scientific indication that these instruments release rays that can be dangerous to the eyes, however long working hours can be wearisome and hence it is often useful to take episodic breaks, looking off in the distance etc.
3. Sometimes I notice dark patchy spots or floaters particularly on the white surface. Can this be the reason for me to worry?
These are the common eye complications which are signs of retinal or corneal malfunctioning. It is always desirable to visit the doctors as timely as possible.
4. I have slowly found it harder to read without glasses. Why?
The capability to focus the near objects declines with age and is referred to as presbyopia. The condition is recognized as the natural aging of the optic lens. The condition is often unalterable with conventional treatments; however, stem cell treatment for eyes can to some degree reverse the impairment naturally with complete stoppage of more progression.
5. Is my kid likely to inherit some eye problems?
Yes, some of the eye sicknesses such as glaucoma, photophobia etc. are witnessed to be directly connected up with a hereditary abnormality which can either be genetic or mutational. However, some of the common eye issues such as burns, corneal damage, etc. are associated with environmental impairment.
6.Can eyes be transplanted?
No, there are no confirmations presently to transplant the whole eyes, however portion of the eye can be replaced if an apt donor is found via eye stem cell transplant.
7. Can stem cell treatment treat my damage?
Yes, stem cells are the unspoiled cells of the body, which can give rise to several diverse kinds of cells once they get appropriate signaling. In case of eye disorders, these cells have shown amazing improvements by segregating into photoreceptor cells, rods and cones cells of the inner eyes, optic nerve cells, etc.
Every patient gets an outsider authentication (broadly certify lab), for quality, amount of feasibility of cells.
The Staff at Viezec is determined to care for you. We will regularly check up on you, call you following one month, two months and a half year to see the improvement of the treatment. This encourages us refine our conventions to improve further. You can likewise require some other assistance on the off chance that required.
