electrical stim machineA new study of how electrical stimulation therapy (EST) can potentially help retinitis pigmentosa patients has recently been presented.

The study, performed by Okuvision GmbH and published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, involves stimulating the eye’s retina with small amounts of electrical current.  According to the source of this story, Medical News Today, “the findings from this study emphasize that electrical stimulation of the retina liberates growth factors which may be able to delay retinal degeneration.” Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/224224.php
