The effects of two stereoisomers of N-acetylcysteine on photochemical damage by UVA and blue light in rat retina.


High doses of light can cause damage to the retina, e.g. during intraocular surgery. Previously, thiols have been demonstrated to protect against retinal damage in various damage models. Such protection is very promising for clinical practice. Retinal light damage can be caused by a relatively short exposure to high irradiance levels. These conditions occur… (More)
