What are cataracts?
Age-related or 'senile' cataract is a progressive eye condition affecting the lens of the eye. As we get older, the lens may become hard, opaque and cloudy. This process affects the amount of light which reaches the inside of our eye - and in turn, the quality of our vision.
If left alone, cataracts lead to sight loss and eventual blindness. A staggering number of people lose their sight to cataracts: there are 17 million worldwide, with 28,000 new cases reported every day.
Cataracts most commonly affect older people. In the US, for example, around 25% of people aged over 65 encounter a significant loss of vision due to cataracts. And this rises to 50% for people over the age of 80.
Surgery is often sought as a solution, and cataract removal is widely recognized as one of the safest operations in the world today.
But the operation does carry risks. In the US, around 30 to 50% of patients undergoing cataract removal require further laser treatment within two years. And of the 1.35 million people in the States who have the operation every year, around 2% (approximately 27,000 people) develop serious complications following cataract surgery.
As we've discovered, tissue-damaging free radicals are a key factor behind the development of cataracts. This is compounded by a process known as glycation, where our tissues react with the glucose in our bodies to alter and stiffen over time. Together, free radicals and glycation create a 'double whammy' effect. They allow the proteins in our eyes to bind together, developing a film that blocks light and impairs vision.

How Big is The Cataract Problem?
Cataracts are inextricably linked with the ageing process. As we grow older, our eye lenses have a tendency to become hard, opaque and cloudy. Less light reaching the center of the eye affects our vision and over time, can result in sight loss and eventual blindness.
Cataracts are a global concern – around 3.8 million people in India alone lose their sight to the condition every year, with an estimated 5 million worldwide.
Cataract surgery is a widely used and safe solution. In fact there are more than one million cataract operations each year in the US alone.
While a trusted and sound solution, it is still, nonetheless, a surgical procedure - carrying with it inherent risks (however small). For example in the United States 30% to 50% of all patients that have cataract surgery, develop opacification of the posterior lens capsule and require further laser treatment.
Aside from this the potential costs of surgery are high (around $3500 per eye for cataract surgery in the US).

Using N-acetylcarnosine Eye-drops
N-acetylcarnosine 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 be continued for a period not less than 3-5 months.

Can Can-C be taken in conjunction with other common eye supplements such as lutein and zeaxanthin/astaxanthin?
We do not recommend that the Can-C™ eye-drops are combined with lutein (unless a person has a cataract associated with a retinal disorder), this is because lutein appears to block the receptor sites and may lower the efficacy of the results. You should stop taking lutein for at least the first 6 months but that after this period they may be started again. This is because Can-C does the majority of its restorative work in that period and thereafter it is maintenance, thus a reduced efficacy is not so essential.

The same is true for zeaxanthin; however we are not aware of contraindications with astaxanthin.

Are there any problems using Can-C concurrently with Xalatan® eye-drops?
To date there have been no noted contraindications or side effects noted with the use of other eye-drops combined with Can-C™, but naturally as there are so many versions, not all eye-drops have been tested along with the same.

Can I continue to use vitamin A and E supplements whilst using Can-C?
It is Dr. Babizhayev’s assertion that certain substances, including vitamins A and E inhibit the conversion process of the NAC into L-carnosine INSIDE the aqueous humor of the eye. He does not endorse them - rather the opposite (at least when used topically, however if vitamin A or E are taken orally there is no contraindication).
It is interesting to note that the copycat products have now stopped adding A and E to their formula, they simply do not understand how this technology performs.

How does Can-C Differ from other N-acetylcarnosine eye drops on the market?
Firstly, Can-C™ is the original eye-drop that mimics the research by the Russians, it is also the only version approved and patented by Innovative Vision Products (IVP), who conducted those clinical trials.
The source of the N-acetylcarnosine in Can-C™ is unique. It is made to a very specific purity in Japan. This is because the Russians found that only a specific purity value was efficacious, this source is only available in Can-C.

Will Can-C eye drops work even though I wear contact lenses?
Yes in fact they can benefit contact lens wearing in 2 ways, firstly they inhibit the accumulation of lactic acid, thereby reducing the pain associated with contacts and secondly the lubricants in Can-C™ make wearing the contacts more comfortable.

Can Can-C be used to help dogs and other pets?
Yes, Can-C™ has been effectively tested on dogs and rabbits. In fact because these animals lack an enzyme called carnosinase (which is found in humans) the drops actually work much faster. This is because the lack of carnosinase means that more of the active ingredient enters the eye and therefore more of the active ingredient is delivered. The only drawback is that administering the drops to animals may mean more loss as the animal blinks or shakes it head etc. But the bottom line is that Can-C is known to improve the dog’s vision when applied daily for several weeks.

How do I store Can-C eye drops?
Can-C™ is stable for lengthy periods at room temperature, although at home we recommend that you keep them in the warmest part of the fridge (i.e. the door). This is especially true with opened bottle’s which should be discarded 28 days after opening (but if you are using the drops every day as recommended the bottle will be empty after 14 days).

What are the benefits of Can-C Plus?
Synergistic combination of ingredients in Can C eye drops and Can C Plus capsules makes both the drops and the capsules even more beneficial to the eyes.
When taken consistently with Can-C eye drops, Can-C Plus increases the length of time that the Can-C eye drops remain active in the eye, by preventing and slowing the breakdown of carnosine once it has been topically delivered. This sustaining action greatly improves free radical protection and further reduces the oxidative environment within the eye allowing for an accelerated healing response.
Can-C eye drops have proven to be highly effective eye protection on their own and are a stand-alone product for the reversal of many ocular conditions. Can-C Plus has been made available as a complimentary supplement for those who want to maximize their effort with the use of Can-C eye drops. In addition, those who have more mature cataract with measurably diminished vision will greatly optimize their effort by taking Can-C Plus in addition to their applications of Can-C eye-drops.
