WHAT CAUSES RP? One child per 3000 births in Australia is born with RP. It can strike in a fam­ily with no known his­tory. It re­sults from an im­per­fec­tion in a tiny gene that causes an in­cor­rect pro­tein to be sup­plied to the retina. This causes pho­tore­cep­tor cells to die, caus­ing pro­gres­sive vi­sion loss.
