In brief: Retinal Chip
Retinitis pigmentosa is a group of inherited disorders that cause degeneration of the retina.
Depending on the type, some vision can be retained throughout life, in other cases, not. The most common symptoms are night blindness and gradual loss of peripheral vision. There is no cure, but there is a new retinal implant which restores crude central vision ( argus ii) for those who are blind from rp.

In brief: No
This is an inherited deficiency of support for the retinal light receptive cells.
The result is a drop out of these cells and progressive loss of vision sometimes leaving a central island but sometimes little at all. A retinal specialist can help sort yours out if you have it. You can also estimate your fate by studying your family members if they have it.
