Inherited degeneration of the retina such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP) causes blindness due to loss of photoreceptor cells. Restoring vision in RP might be possible with gene therapy. In a laboratory study in Oxford, a research team has shown how it might be possible to reverse blindness using gene therapy to reprogram cells at the back of the eye to become light sensitive.
