HMO DEVELOPS RP CONTACT LENSES

Special contact lenses
that appear to appreciably
retard the progressive vis-
ual deterioration of patients
with retinitis pigmentosa
(RP) have been developed at
the Hadassah-Hebrew Uni-
versity Medical Center in
Jerusalem.
This is one of a series of
developments resulting
from the RP research pro-
gram in the Department of
Ophthalmology, where the
various medical and
technological skills of sev-
eral teams are cooperating
in an intensive program to
learn the causes of and ways
to control this complex
genetic disease.

Retinitis pigmentosa is
the most frequent cause of
hereditary blindness, which
starts with young people in
their teens and peaks in
their 20s_and 30s. No treat-
ment is known for the dis-
ease, in which an excess of

pigment is found dispersed
in the retina.
The purpose of the spe-
cially constructed contact
lenses is to slow down the
deterioration of the retina
by reducing the amount of
light entering the eye, and
to eliminate the dangerous
wave lengths of light. The
lenses are currently under-
going evaluation. One team
is growing retinal pigment
epithelium cells from ani-
mals and looking for the fac-
tors that influence the
metabolism of these cells.
Only a few laboratories in
the world are doing this
type of research.
Another department
team is studying the
biochemistry of Vitamin A
in the pigment epithelium
cells of the retina and work-
ing on the effect of different
wave lengths of light on
healthy and diseased
retinas as well as on the ef-
fect of Vitamin A.
