The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of HBO therapy on visual function in RP patients. We performed a single-center, comparative, longitudinal case-controlled randomized clinical trial, which lasted 10 years. We randomly divided RP patients into two groups. Group 1, the control group… CONTINUE READING
