Al-Youm Al-Sabea TV broadcast, special coverage prepared by Esraa Abdel-Qader, and presented by Germaine Shalaby, during which he reviewed that in their latest research, scientists set out to determine whether color-determining genes regulate retinal health independently of their role in the formation of eye color.

The health risks associated with eye color are an emerging area of ​​interest in the scientific community, but many of the findings so far have been inconclusive..

The scientists’ recent findings indicate that genes are a critical determinant of retinal health and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The latest findings show that some of the metabolites involved in eye color damage the retina, with the degree of degeneration determined by imbalances between metabolites and other protective metabolic pathways in the eye..

Scientists now know that four genes known to control eye color are also essential for healthy retinal tissue.

In previous research, scientists found that people with brown eyes had a lower risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of blindness in the elderly..

The study stated that previous studies indicated that light iris color increases the risk of age-related macular degeneration, that is, individuals with blue iris color were more inclined to have a higher prevalence and a stronger probability of developing age-related macular degeneration compared to those with darker iris color.
