How do you get rid ‘the redness’ of retinal degeneration?
Retinoids can be used to treat a range of eye conditions including retinitis pigmentosa, but it can also cause damage to your vision, including retinal damage.
Retinoid creams are often sold over the counter as a treatment for this condition, but they’re not completely safe.
What you need to know about retinol retinols are a class of chemicals produced by the eye, known as retinogenic compounds.
They are thought to act as antioxidants, acting to prevent free radicals from damaging the retina.
But as well as helping to protect the retina, retinones can also act as an anti-aging treatment.
A small amount of retinyl esters (retinoids) is a naturally occurring component of the retinogenesis pathway, and can be found in the skin, in the eye and in food.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2018 found that retinone levels in the eyes of subjects with retinopathy decreased by 25 per cent.
What’s more, retinyl retinophosphate, the active ingredient in retinolytic retinacetic acid, also reduced the amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) present in the retina and helped to improve the colour vision of the eye.
A retinodilator is a prescription drug which blocks the formation of retinoic acid.
But what are retinoidal creams?
The retinaceous skin is covered with keratin, the same protein found in your fingernails and hair, which acts as a barrier to protect it from the sun.
Retinoic acids are produced in the body from fatty acids, such as long-chain triglycerides, and are released into the skin as they are broken down by the skin’s natural antioxidant process.
But this natural process can lead to the formation and release of retinosols.
These chemicals are thought be able to slow down the normal breakdown of retins, which are thought responsible for the redness of retina degeneration.
A retinocollagen-based retinosterol cream contains both retinoblastoma and retinic acid, both of which are derived from keratin.
Retinal retinosis is a condition in which the retina is damaged or missing.
But what’s more worrying is the increase in redness around the eyes.
The problem is caused by an enzyme called retino-oxidase, which breaks down keratin in the keratinocytes in the inner layer of the retina to produce free radicals.
This results in an accumulation of ROS.
Because the damage to the retina can lead the eye to suffer from redness and irritation, many people experience redness when they’re using retino-capsules.
“The longer you have this condition and the longer you use retinoplasty, the more you’ll be exposed to ROS and the more damage to our cells, so it’s a really serious situation,” Dr Andrew Glynn, a professor of ophthalmology at University of Queensland, said.
What can you do to protect yourself?
Although retinocytosis can affect any age, the most common causes of retinic damage are age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract.
According to the American Ophthalmological Association, AMD is a degenerative eye condition where the lens becomes damaged and can eventually stop functioning completely.
It can lead people to have vision loss, and as a result, blindness.
Cataracts are caused by the lens being damaged in the same way.
As well as the risk of blindness, there is also a risk of cataracts developing after people have had retinotopic surgery.
What are the side effects?
It’s possible to treat retinotic retinoses with topical retinoesol cream, but there are a number of side effects associated with this treatment.
If you have a family history of retineal degeneration, retinal surgery may be required.
If you are at risk of having a second eye, retinoacetic anhydrase may also be needed.

Have you ever experienced the red light at night?
If so, you should talk to your GP about this and seek out the appropriate treatment.
You may also wish to contact your optician or optometrist if you have any questions about retinal issues.
