Should Retin-A Be Used in the Under Eye Area?

I have had great results with Retin A 0.05% cream on my face. It has worked really well on lightening up darkened areas caused by the sun and fine wrinkles . Is it safe to use under the eye where I have fine lines?

Retin A Use Around The Eyes

Retin A is a very effective skin treatment for the entire face.  Use under the eyes is limited only by the thickness of the skin.  Most physicians recommend lower doses of Retin A in thinner skin areas.
