Retinosis pigmentosa (RP) is a rare skin condition that causes the eyes to appear dark.
People with this condition may have: dark eyes and/or discoloration in the irises, eyebrows, eyelids, lips, or under the skin (e.g., rashes, sores, etc.); severe, painful redness in the eyes and irises (e .g., conjunctivitis); and/ or discolored, damaged or discolorized skin under the eyes.
Treatment for this condition is usually limited to wearing a contact lens or corrective lenses, or both, to correct the appearance of the eyes for a few days to a few weeks.
Treatment usually lasts for at least a month.
Retinopathy pigmentosa is a condition that affects the skin of the iris and/our cornea, causing it to appear darker.
Treatment typically lasts for several months.
In severe cases, the discoloring may be permanent.
Retinal pigmentosum is a pigment that produces the appearance and/reversal of the dark brown or dark-gray coloration of the cornea.
Treatment generally lasts for a month or two.
The most common type of retinopathy is retinitis hyperpigmentedum (RP).
Treatment usually occurs with a combination of topical eye drops, topical retinoids, and other retinoid medication.
There are two main types of RP: keratopathy and retinopathies.
Keratopathy refers to the formation of keratomas, which can be very painful.
These are the most common types of retinal pigmentoma and are typically the most severe.
They cause the irides to turn gray, and they often result in permanent blindness.
There is also an intermediate type, keratopathies, which are keratoma-like structures that develop under the retina, causing the eyes, or sometimes both, or even the whole cornea to appear gray.
Treatment often lasts for months to years.
The cornea also changes shape and is often less flexible than normal, which makes it more difficult for people with RP to correct their eye color.
The other types of keraticosum that cause RP are retinotopic keratosum (RTK), which is a type of keratin that is caused by the retinal detachment of a pigment, and retinal pigmentation keratomyosum, which is caused when the corneal pigment cells detach from the surrounding keratin.
Treatment is typically only for a short time, usually only a few months, and usually with a treatment regimen that involves several different retinol regimens, which include topical retinoic acid, oral retinoate, and/and topical retinyl palmitate.
Other types of corneosurgery (such as microdermabrasion, ophthalmic surgery, and laser eye surgery) may also be used to correct dark-eyed individuals.
There’s also a rare type of cornea tumor called the corpus plexus that causes corneas to become smaller than normal and eventually fail.
This causes the cornoid to be compressed.
This type of cancer is known as retinal carcinoma.
Treatment may not always be as effective as treating the eyes themselves, and it may be difficult to accurately measure the amount of pigment loss, but it can be helpful to look at the amount and appearance of pigment change over time.
