Institute for support of patients with RP (a non-governmental organization) was established in 2001 with the registration number 14152 with the aim of providing diagnostic and treatment services and financial and social support to this group of patients. In recent years, with the efforts of stakeholders, more than 6,000 RP patients of different ages have been identified. In this regard, this institute is the first and only RP institute in the country.

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a group of inherited retinal diseases that progressively and gradually reduce vision. The disease usually begins with night vision problems and intensifies at a young age, followed by a narrow field of vision, and in the next stage, the patient’s direct and central vision decreases, and can eventually lead to blindness.

Our mission is to identify RP patients in Iran. We are trying to eradicate this disease in the country by informing the public about this disease and cooperating with reputable research centers.

Active colleagues in the institute

All RP activists are trying to provide all the facilities to serve RP patients throughout Iran.
