Can-C Eye Drops
Can-C (NAC) is a natural anti-oxidant eye-drop designed
to tackle senile cataracts and other aging eye disorders
As we age, many conditions can affect our
eyes, from floaters (eye spots), dry eyes and cataracts, to glaucoma and AMD (age-related macular degeneration).
These changes come with normal aging and can be postponed by avoiding eye-strain, smoking and stress, whilst
helping your eyes stay healthy with eye exercises and special health supplements. One of the most important and
most effective supplements to help alleviate eye disorders are Can-C eye drops - also known as NAC eye

Russians' remarkable NAC
In the East, particularly in Russia, over the last several or more years, there has been
considerable research done into a special analogue of the di-peptide carnosine. This particular form is known as
N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) and it has been proven to be highly effective in the treatment of
The results of
more than 10 years of research with this unique, natural anti-oxidant have been now published. The leader of the
Moscow research team, Dr Mark Babizhayev, has announced that cataract can now be successfully influenced with an
eye drop. This makes Can-C good eye drops for cataracts.
The group known as Innovative Vision Products (IVP), have tested various anti-glycation carnosine
agents in-vitro and in-vivo, and discovered that a natural antioxidant known as N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) helps the
aging eye to recover in terms of improving its clarity, glare sensitivity, color perception and overall
These remarkable results can be seen within a matter of months, and sometimes positive effects
are noted in a few weeks time. To-date, no serious side-effects or contraindications have been reported, even after
a human clinical study of continuous eye-drop use for 2-years.
IVP’s N-acetylcarnosine eye
Senile cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical operation in the world today.
There are 1.35 million eye operations each year in the USA, and while cataract surgery is generally recognised as
being one of the safest operations, there is a significant complication rate. For example, in the United States 30%
to 50% of all patients having cataract extraction, develop opacification of the posterior lens capsule within two
years and require further laser treatment. (Opacification is generally known as clouding of the eye lens, or
secondary cataract, where the eye becomes cloudy or opaque.)
N-acetylcarnosine (Can-C) eye-drops provide treatment without surgery, and allow the patient to
keep their natural lens rather than cope with an artificial one.
The statistics in
the human trials show that N-acetylcarnosine eye-drops applied for 6-months twice daily into the eye, in patients
all suffering from senile cataract, had the following
- 88.9% had an improvement of glare
sensitivity - Glare sensitivity makes it difficult to
recognize shapes and contrast in your surroundings.
- 41.5% had an improvement of the
transmissivity of the lens - Transmissivity of the lens
generally improves the lens ability to transmit the light. Improved transmissivity means better
- 90% had an improvement in visual
acuity - Visual acuity is clearness of vision, which is
dependent on the sharpness of the retinal focus within the eye.
How does Carnosine work in
Cataracts are caused by the hardening and discoloration of the lens due to lifelong cross-linking
(glycosylation) of the lens proteins with ascorbate. This persists in the aqueous humor at high concentrations, due
to the low availability of natural defenses in the form of anti-oxidants (which decline with advancing
N-acetylcarnosine delivers L-carnosine into the aqueous humor of the eye (the fluid area
surrounding the lens) where it acts as a natural and comprehensive anti-oxidant, protecting structural lens
proteins from the free-radical induced oxidation process.
Aqueous humor is
the clear fluid in the front of the eye, between the cornea and the iris, that provides nutrients to the cornea and
the lens. The fluid is produced by the ciliary body, which lies just behind the iris and gets its nutrients from
blood vessels in the eye. Glaucoma causes a difficulty in draining this fluid, and pressure builds up. The result
is damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision.
Using N-acetylcarnosine (NAC)
N-acetylcarnosine or Can-C eye-drops have been shown to have measurable affects within only
1-month of use. However, it is recommended that for maximum efficacy, that administration of the drops be continued
for a period not less than 3-5 months. In addition, the Can-C eye drops’ effectiveness is increased the sooner they
are used after a cataract is detected.
Also, considering that senile cataracts are an on-going aging disorder, N-acetylcarnosine may be
required on a regular basis to help maintain the eye's natural anti-oxidant
Additional Can-C eye drops
Other than senile cataract, N-acetylcarnosine (Can-C eye drops) may have other benefits. Although
the information is not yet published, the unique N-acetylcarnosine formula with its added and synergistic
lubricants, could also provide beneficial results with the following eye-disorders:
- This is a form of farsightedness – the inability to
maintain a clear image of close-by objects.
- Open-angle primary
glaucoma (in combination with beta-blockers) - Glaucoma is
the increased pressure within the eyeball that can cause optic nerve damage and loss of
- Corneal disorders
- If the cornea is irregularly shaped or damaged, it causes
- Computer vision syndrome
- Basically a form of dry eyes syndrome - Prolonged use of
computer causes dry eyes, blurred vision and irritation.
- Eye strain
- Overuse or straining of eyes, usually associated with
prolonged use of computers or TV, caused by screen flicker.
inflammation - This is inflammation of the uvea, the middle
layer of the eye, which contains many blood vessels that carry blood to the eye.
vision - The loss of sharpness of vision and the inability
to see small details.
- Dry eye syndrome
- A condition when the eyes do not produce enough tears to
keep them moist.
- Retinal diseases
- Retina is the innermost coating of the eye, connected to
the brain via the optic nerve.
- Vitreous opacities and lesions
- Eye floaters or spots in front of the eye, formed by small
clumps of protein in the vitreous – the jelly-like material that fills the eyeball.
- Diabetes caused
disorders - These are eye complications caused by diabetes
mellitus (type 2) and other systemic diseases.
- Contact lens difficulties
- particularly eye problems caused by soft contact
Can-C help with contact
Can-C eye-drops can inhibit lactic acid accumulation under contact lenses. It is lactic acid that
makes the wearing of contact lenses, particularly soft contact lenses, unbearable after a period of time. So, not
only do the lubricants in Can-C improve contact lens comfort in the eye, the reduction of lactic acid can also
lengthen the time that contact lenses can be worn.
Dosage: As a preventative measure, one
drop into the eye once a day with frequent breaks may be a suitable on-going regime. As a treatment for
senile cataracts, one or two drops into the eye, twice daily for a period of 6 months. It is recommended that
occasional use of N-acetylcarnosine eye-drops continue even after the reduction/reversal of the cataract to
prevent any re-occurrence.
effects: To date, no serious side effects or
contraindications have been noted in any of the clinical trials.
"I thought it necessary to send
this e-mail, hesitated a bit for which you will read, but had to send it on. I have received the four boxes of
Can-C, have used them for four days, one drop in the left eye, the only "problem" eye. I almost hesitate to relate
this, usually when you think something good happens, it almost ends when you tell it.
I felt immediate relief the very first day of using the drops, it
was uncanny. Then I thought, maybe it was all mental, that I just wanted them to work for me. The second and on to
the fourth day, it is difficult to tell you how the eye feels now without actually telling someone in
I was having extreme sensitivity to sunlight in the left eye, now
it hardly bothers me. The eye had been feeling "swollen", the lid that is, is best how I can describe it. It was
difficult for me to look upward, I had to lower my head back to look up at anything. All this appears to be
disappearing. I would just hate that it all goes away after telling you this, but I really don't think it
My reason for going to see an Ophthalmologist was because I had
"something" under that left lid. Once there, I was given a complete examination for cataracts, macular degeneration
and glaucoma, he saw a slight beginning of a cataract and macular degeneration, the glaucoma was not mentioned. I
have a six month appointment for next month. This doctor did absolutely nothing for the actual problem I went in
for, simply told me to use a warm, moist compress on that left eye for 15 minutes, twice a day, but it did no good.
I began using a salt solution instead, super saturated, and within two weeks that horrible feeling under the lid
was gone. Oh, yes, he pulled that lid back and said to me, "I see a nodule or something like one, I could shave it
down, but am positive it will grow back!" This is something a patient doesn't want to hear. I essentially left
there with no plan of treatment.
I have no actual loss of vision in that left eye, just a slight
bit of cloudiness which you might expect for a forming cataract, but that didn't bother me. I am 70 years old and
more of less expected to have developed a cataract. He did not actually say that the left eye was the one with the
forming cataract, I am simply assuming.
I am from a small town in Alabama and have told all my friends
about what the drops have done in such a very short time. All of them have already had cataracts removed from both
eyes by this very same doctor.
I know that maybe you do not want to say that the drops actually
will dissolve the cataract, but I have a positive outlook that it will. I worked all my years as a research
biochemist for a leading pharmaceutical company, so I am familiar with the medical terms and know that the acetyl
radical does take the carnosine through the membranes.
I am very excited about these drops and will use the four boxes
and if I should need more for that right eye should it develop a cataract "down the road", you can be assured I
will place my order.
Thank you so much for these drops, you cannot imagine how much my
well being has changed since using them only four days ago, that left eye problem had simply consumed me
completely, I found myself snapping and being rude to my closest of friends all because of that most uncomfortable
“I have used Can-C Eye Drops at a rate of
approximately 2-drops /day in each eye since April 22, 2003 to date (July 31, 2003). I was suffering from
Brunescent Cataracts and unrecognized Night Blindness in both eyes. My night vision has returned, and I again feel
safe driving at night. The halo around bright lights is very much diminished, some small 'sparkles' remain, but do
not present any problem for me. I have found no negative side-effects. My vision has improved by approximately "2
chart lines", and I can again read highway signs without glasses.”
J. Rutherford, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I have been taking the Can-C eye-drops since February 2003. I had my
vision checked on April 2. My vision has improved four (4) times and my lens is clearing. I get my vision checked
again in July. I will keep you informed of my progress. Can-C drops have been a godsend to me, thank
P. Metcalfe, New York
“I just wanted you to know that the improvement
in my vision is amazing. I had gotten to the point where I could no longer drive due to haziness from my cataracts,
and now I feel very secure and am able to see almost as well as before my cataracts were diagnosed- also I have not
noticed any kind of side effects. I just wanted to tell you how happy I am and that I am definitely recommending
Can-C eye-drops to all my friends with similar problems!”
