9 Internet Vision/Health Resources


9.1 Mailing Lists A number of mailing lists are located on the Internet which deal with specific visual problems or conditions. The list descriptions or "charter" are described below :



9.1.1 RPList

This list deals with all retinal degenerations including Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Description: Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a generic name for a family 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.
