Rhodopsin-mediated autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is the most common cause of RP in North America. There is no proven cure for the disease, and multiple approaches are being studied. Gene therapy is an evolving field in medicine and ophthalmology. In this review, we will go over the basic concept of gene therapy and the different types of gene therapy that are currently being studied to treat this disease.
