In early 2009, I started the blog NjCataractRemoval.com, which is dedicated to providing the latest quality information about alternative treatments to cataract surgery. People who are afflicted with cataracts, or who have loved ones who are afflicted with it, often send me emails thanking me for creating a place where they can go to find out more about the condition, and to answer some of the questions they have about the less invasive ways of treating cataracts, rather than surgery. People also ask me what my main reasons were for starting the blog, and if I have had cataracts myself. Well, the answer is fortunately, no, I have never had cataracts, but I do have very personal reasons for starting a blog that is dedicated to cataracts.

Cataracts is a condition that affects millions of people every year, and my grandfather is one of those people. My sisters and I have always been very close to my grandparents. When we were young and our parents would go out, or go on vacation, Nana and Grandfather would always come over and baby sit for us. So my sisters and I grew close to them from an early age.

My grandparents names are James and Olivia, and they live in Edison New Jersey and have always been active throughout their lives. They love to go driving on road trips to visit friends and family all across the Eastern part of the United States.

My grandfather James, had good vision his whole life, but as he moved into his senior years, his vision began to slowly deteriorate. He started complaining about a glare, as well as haziness when he would drive, especially at night. It got so bad that he was too nervous to drive at night anymore. He finally went to see his Opthalmologist and was suddenly diagnosed with senile cataracts in both eyes. The doctor recommended surgery to remove the cataracts and explained that cataract surgery was a common and safe procedure that had become a routine procedure in medicine in recent years.

Since my grandfather was a health nut throughout his life, and had never had any major surgery, he was totally against getting surgery on his eyes. So, he enlisted some of us in the family to help him look for alternative treatments. While doing some extensive research online to find alternatives to cataract surgery, I found out about Can-C eye drops.

Can-C N-Acetylcarnosine eye drops solution acts as an anti oxidant which protects the lens and its structural proteins from the oxidation process induced by free radicals. This has the affect of safely and painlessly reversing senile cataracts.

Can-C is the original cataract eye drop treatment which has been clinically tested and has a track record of 10 plus years of successfully reversing cataracts on people world wide.

Also, while doing my research about cataract treatments I discovered some interesting facts about cataract surgery. Although cataract surgery is among the most commonly performed surgical procedures anywhere, there is a compelling rate of complication as a result of the surgery. Between 30% and 50% of all patients in the United States that have cataract surgery done, develop posterior lens opacification within 24 months of the procedure and therefore require further surgical correction treatments. And about 3% of all cataract surgery cases have more serious complications such as a detached retina as a result of the surgery.

Another factor that played into my grandfather’s decision not to have surgery was the cost. We found that on average it costs about $3,000 per eye to have cataract surgery. And since my grandfather lives in New Jersey and would be getting New Jersey cataract treatment, or New York cataract treatment, the cost for his surgery would be even more. Although he never got a specific price quote from his doctor, I’m quite sure that the price for NJ cataract surgery and NY cataract surgery is significantly higher than in most other parts of the U.S.

So, those were the primary reasons he opted to give Can-C a try. My grandfather started taking Can-C eye drops in October of 2008. He would put two drops in each eye in the morning, and two drops in each eye in the evening. He did this religiously for about 4 to 5 weeks before he started seeing major results. He reported that the glare and the haziness started clearing up. About 2 months in he started doing short drives at night and was not having any problems seeing the road. We were all amazed at how quickly and significantly the change in his eyesight came, and he reported no discomfort and no pain from taking the Can-C eye drops on a dialy basis.

After New Years 2009, my grandfather started claiming that he felt that he was seeing better than he had prior to developing cataracts. Needless to say, none of us expected these remarkable results. Today, my Grandfather is still active and still driving without a problem, even at night. He continues to take Can-C about once a day now, just to maintain his good vision, and as a preventative measure against cataracts forming again.

After playing a small role in helping my grandfather avoid cataract surgery, and being a witness to what is just an unbelievable recovery from cataracts, I decided to start the Njcataractremoval.com blog about the whole experience. I think it’s important to get the word out and let people who may be in the same situation as my grandfather know, that they are not alone, and that they do have other options when it comes to cataract treatments.

I hope that this blog post has been helpful to you, and you can also find a lot of other content about Can-C posted throughout my blog.

As one of the leading causes of blindness, cataracts can have a serious impact on a person’s eyesight. Cataracts mostly affect people as they age, and partial or total blindness often occurs if left untreated. The symptoms of cataracts include cloudy, foggy, or fuzzy vision; changes in the way one sees colors; problems with night vision while driving; too much glare from the sun or lamps; double vision; frequent changes in eyeglass prescription; and better near vision (which can occur only temporarily for farsighted people).

Some common causes for cataracts are aging, smoking, diabetes, sunlight exposure, arthritis, near-sightedness, and some medications used to lower blood pressure. If you suspect a problem with cataracts, consult with a doctor as soon as possible to get a correct diagnosis. Explain the symptoms and problems with eyesight you are experiencing so the doctor can properly diagnose your condition.

Until now, the only hope for cataract relief has been ophthalmic surgery. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens implant. The implant then restores the eye’s normal focusing ability. The capsule supporting the lens can become cloudy later on, and patients often have a second laser surgery to open the cloudy capsule to restore vision to normal again.

Cataract surgery can work wonders for eye disorders but positive results cannot be guaranteed. Cataract surgery is also an expensive endeavor. But with so many people lacking the funds or the health insurance coverage needed for surgery, sufferers often have to simply live with the cataracts and the negative effects cataracts have on their eyes.

Can-C Eye Drops for Cataracts

Thankfully, new research has revealed a wonderful alternative to cataract surgery. There are now easy-to-use eye drops that can dissolve cataracts naturally. These drops contain N-acetyl-carnosine (NAC), which studies have shown to act as an antioxidant that can enter the lens tissue when present at effective concentrations.

NAC has been proposed in studies as an effective treatment for ocular disorders that feature a component of oxidative stress in their makeup. These include cataracts, glaucoma, ocular inflammation, retinal degeneration, corneal disorders, diabetes mellitus complications, and systemic disease.

Help for People and Pets

The cataract eye drops are not only designed to help people with cataracts; they help pets such as dogs and cats as well. The eye drops are specifically designed for people or pets and are 100 percent hypoallergenic. They can effectively reduce or eliminate cataracts without surgery, which saves time and money. Surgery for pets is often just as expensive as surgery for people. With the eye drops, one can help their pet’s eyesight improve without costly surgery.

When it comes to good health, eyesight often gets put on the back burner. It’s something we tend to take for granted until we lose it! With N-acetyl-carnosine Can-C eye drops, many cataract sufferers are rediscovering the world around them thanks to their new improved eyesight. You can easily try the cataract eye drops by going online to order them (no prescription necessary). Get relief for your eyes the natural way!

Can-C eye drops safely reverse cataracts and are approved by the IVP (Innovative Vision Products)for use on cataract suffering adults. The new treatment avoids the need for surgical removal of cataracts and high priced private surgery while offering affordability and acknowledged proven results.

Dr. Mark Babizhayev Ma, PhD has patented a clinically trialled eye drop (Can-C)that has been proven to reverse cataracts without the need for surgery. It uses the raw material N-Acetylcarnosine to reverse the damage of cataracts by simply applying several drops into the eye each day.

Statistically the United Kingdom has over 500,000 cataract sufferers waiting for surgery at any one time. Just one London Hospital carries out 250 – 500 cataract surgeries every week. Can-C N-Acetylcarnosine eye drops is a safe and effective way to treat cataracts without the need for surgery.

As expected people in the international market place saw the opportunity to capitalise on this breakthrough and started to offer similar products that came with very poor results. Dr. Babizhayev voiced his concerns by saying "these companies often reference my research in their marketing efforts even though they have no affiliation with me and are definitely not offering my proprietary N-acetylcarnosine formulation called Can-C, which the research was based upon."

Fortunately there is a simple way for consumers to Verify if they have purchased the "Clinically Proven Formula" because each product has the statement "Approved by Innovative Vision Products (IVP)." printed directly on the box!

IVP is a Pharmaceutical and Nanotechnology Development Company with a portfolio of patent protected innovative chemical entities, drug delivery systems, and unique medical devices to target specific biomedical applications. Do Not be fooled by random formulations and claims from other companies.

Remarkably the success is not limited to humans as Can-C eye drops are available for Canine or Dog cataracts too. Happily, many dog owners are using this product to effectively address their pet’s cataract condition including veterinarians.

Jack Stephans DVM of Pets Best Insurance said "as a veterinarian I want to let you know that I am recommending N-acetylcarnosine (Can-C) for the treatment of canine or dog cataracts. After applying Can-C eye drops to my 15 year old miniature pinscher, "Skeeter", for one year, the cataract in his right eye has diminished! Your cataract eye drops are a modern scientific miracle for our pets."

Like Dr Stephans we all love our pets and would do most anything to help them enjoy their more senior years. Administering Can-C is safe, affordable and has no reported side effects backed by controlled clinical trials.

If you would like to read more about Dr. Mark Babizhayev, his research, testimonials or are a Physician, Veterinarian or Alternative Health Care Practitioner wishing to find out more then please visit the N-Acetylcarnosine (Can-C) Cataract Eye Drops website where there is detailed information and full scientific explanations on how Can-C works.

If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself suffering from the problem of cataract, you may be forgiven for thinking that the only way to improve your sight is to undergo lens replacement surgery. This, however, is no longer the case as there is a non-invasive alternative to cataract surgery in the form of a soothing eye drop called Can-C, This breakthrough eye drop quickly improved the visual acuity of over 90% of the cataract patients tested in controlled clinical trials.

But what are Can-C Eye Drops and are they better than opting for cataract surgery? To answer specifically you must prepare to be taken back a bit to a few of the science lessons you had at school.

It is known by researchers that the young and healthy human eye contains high levels of a natural di-peptide antioxidant called L-carnosine. Scientists recently learned that the eyes of those who were developing cataracts, and other degenerative ocular diseases, were found to be extremely lacking in this particular, and essential, ocular antioxidant.

Dr. Mark Babizhayev MA PhD of Moscow, the senior research investigator for the clinical trials, used N-acetyl carnosine, a variation of L-carnosine that is suitable for ocular application, and refined it even further to a precise level of purity and specific intraocular-release delivering it safely into the aqueous humor (the fluid area inside the eye). This is where the bio-identical antioxidant once released, becomes most effective in its ability to reverse the lipid peroxidation that encourages the development of cataract.

So, science lesson over. The question is do they work? The answer is again; yes. Clinical trials showed that the consistent application of Can-C eye drops was very successful in not only halting any worsening of the disease but in actually improving the visual acuity of 90% the patients in the clinical trial. In simpler terms it is a reversal of the condition.

One of the clinical trials treated 96 patients aged 60 and above, all of which had senile cataract at various degrees of maturity. The duration of the disease in these patients ranged between 2 and 21 years. Firstly, the researchers stopped the patient’s use of all other anti-cataract drugs. Then the patients instilled 1 or 2 drops into each eye 3 or 4 times a day, for a period of 3 to 6 months.

The level of eyesight improvement and the change of lens transparency were considered as an evaluation index. The results showed that there was a pronounced effect on primary senile cataract; the effective rate was 100%, which means that all of the patients showed improvement. For the more mature senile cataract the effective rate was 80%, which was equally remarkable considering that some of the patients had had cataracts for more than 20 years. It is also interesting to mention that there were no negative side effects and that in general there was an overall improvement of health throughout the eye.

When these statistics are taken into consideration compared to cataract surgery, it becomes quite clear that Can-C Eye Drops have the advantage. It is estimated by critics that around 26,000 individuals experience serious complications as a result of cataract surgery in the United States every year.

The considerable complication rate of cataract surgery is perhaps the main reason that much cataract research has been carried out over recent years. Additionally, members of particular research teams have noted that the artificial lens fitted in cataract surgery does not have the same overall optical qualities of our own natural lens.

Additionally the healing effects of Can-C eye drops appear to be very beneficial for many other eye conditions such as; glaucoma, contact lens disorders, corneal disorders, chronic eyestrain, blurred vision, dry eye syndrome and even floaters.

Of course, in some more severe cases Can-C will only slow the growth of the cataract and delay the likelihood of surgery, however for many this is a significant option.

Those wishing to apply the eye drops over a long period of time should always consult with their eye care physician

Can-C is a product that has been proven effective in reversing and controlling the age-related disorder, senile cataract. Developed and patented by Innovative Vision Products, Can-C contains the active ingredient, special form of N-acetylcarnosine or NAC, a dipeptide that can be found naturally in the human body. Its parent compound, carnosine is a natural component in food and human cells such as the heart, skeletal muscles, and the brain.

N-Acetylcarnosine is an important molecule that plays an important role in the prevention of age-related diseases. It acts as an antioxidant as well as an inhibitor of the age related glycation process.

Although carnosine is naturally present in the body, its amount is affected by the age of the person. As the human body ages, the level of carnosine in the body decreases. When this happens, age-related disorders like senile cataracts begin to present.

Cataract is a visual impairment disease in which the patient complains of blurriness, glare sensitivity and diminished visual ocuity, which can ultimately lead to blindness. The problem happens with the aged eye lens. The clear lens of the eye develops an opacity which progressively hinders vision. Upon doctor’s advice, the usual treatment is eye surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial one.

However, as with any surgery, there are risks to the patient which can vary from bleeding to having post surgery eye infection. But not all types of cataracts need surgery now that there is a non invasive option for dealing with cataract.

With the breakthrough of effectively re-introducing carnosine into the cells of the eye topically, thousands are now choosing a more natural approach to treating cataract..

Can-C which is available as an eye drop provides the most direct delivery route of carnosine to the aqueous humor of the eye. The ‘N-acetyl’ part of the molecule is what makes carnosine soluble in lipids. This means the ‘N-acetyl’ component helps in the absorption of the molecule into the lipid membranes of the retinal, corneal and lens cells. Once N-acetylcarnosine is delivered into the cell, it then releases the basic component, carnosine where it then exerts its beneficial antioxidant effects, with no side effects.

The use of Can-C in treating cataracts has been studied over the last twelve years now by a leading group of Russian medical researchers. Over that time frame this amazing antioxidant eye drop has generated thousands of reports of safe and effective cataract reversal both in humans and animals.

The human trial results revealed that those affected for less than 7 years had the fastest and greatest improvement, those with cataracts for 7-15 years still had good results and those that had the disease for over 15 years had the least beneficial results but still obtained measurable visual improvement.

The recommended dose for treatment is 2 drops, twice a day applied to the affected eye with visual ocuity improvements in just 90 days time. For optimal results, it’s recommended that application is continue for a period 6-12 months. Then for preventing the recurrence of cataract, a dosage of 1 drop a day on the eye is recommend as an on-going regimen.

Can-C Eye Drops May Help Senile Cataracts Become A Health Condition Of The Past.

Senile cataracts are a visual impairment brought about by the gradual and progressive thickening of the ocular lens which leads to the loss of lens’ transparency, slowly diminishing a person’s ability to see clearly. The term ‘senile’ is often used simply because this disease primarily affects aging people usually in the age group, 50 and above. Cataract is characterized by the opacification of the ocular lens which can be seen as a cloudy appearance of the lens, usually yellowish or brownish in color. A person affected with cataracts may also have noticeable brownish tinted vision. Other symptoms would include blurriness of vision glare sensitivity, problems with night vision, double vision or multiple images in one eye, accompanied by the need for frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription strength.

In the U.S. alone, at least 300,000 – 400,000 new cataract cases occur annually. This disease is a common cause of blindness in elderly people when not treated. A comprehensive eye examination which includes visual acuity test (vision exam at various distances), dilated eye exam and tonometry (measurement of the pressure inside the eye) is needed to detect cataracts. The most common treatment is surgery in which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called intraocular lens (IOL). Intraocular lens is a clear plastic lens which can focus light clearly on to the retina once again. Cataract surgery is not totally without risk however, as opacification of the posterior lens capsule occurs in 30-50% of patients within 2 years of surgical cataract removal and require secondary laser treatment; further 0.8% experience retinal detachments, approximately 1% are re-hospitalized for corneal problems, and about 0.1% develop endophthalmitis.

The use of Can-C eye drops containing this unique purity of, N-Acetylcarnosine, in safely managing cataract is a major advancement in the medical world. For the first time, cataract can now be effectively reversed without having to resort to the risks of eye surgery.

N-Acetylcarnosine or NAC is a molecule that’s found naturally in the human body. Its parent compound, carnosine, can be naturally found in foods and in human cells. Carnosine is found primarily in the tissues of the heart, skeletal muscles, the brain and in and throughout eye. This natural di-peptide (two amino acids linked together) acts as an antioxidant and as an inhibitor of the body’s glycation process which is a degenerative chemical process that contributes to aging throughout the body. As we age our natural carnosine levels decreases which leave the eye vulnerable to ocular disease such as cataracts. Unfortunately oral consumption of carnosine rich foods or supplements is not bioavailable to the eyes and so restoring these levels systemically is not reliable.

In Russia, where carnosine deficiency in the eyes was first discovered as a fundamental precursor to ocular disease, the use of topical N-acetylcarnosine; to effectively address cataracts in the form of Can-C eye drops was established. In 2001, Can-C eye drops were trialed in a double blind, placebo based, human study for a period of 6 months. The impressive results showed that 90% had visual acuity improvement, 88.9% had glare sensitivity improvement and 41.5 % had an improvement in the transmissivity of the lens.

With the market release of the product by Innovative Visions Product (IVP), 7 years ago, thousands of people affected with senile cataracts have reported vast improvement in their vision after applying Can-C cataract eye drops for a period of 6-12 months.

Dr. Mark Babizhayev, MA, PhD, the principal researcher in the development of Can-C eye drops cautions consumers before purchasing any eye drops containing N-acetylcarnosine to look for the words, ‘Approved by Innovative Vision Products’ on the label. This is your assurance that the product contains the proprietary purity of raw material and is the formula that was proven to have long-term efficacy in clinical trials.

Over the last ten years, Dr. Mark Babizhayev and his team of Russian medical researchers have continued to observe the ongoing beneficial effects of this breakthrough cataract eye drop. In clinical trials conducted, it showed that patients instilled with two drops of the 1% N-acetylcarnosine (Can-C) eye drops twice daily for a period of 6 months showed vast improvement in their pre-existing eye conditions. The effective rate was a reported 100%. These results led to the patent and manufacture of the product providing a long awaited, safe and effective alternative to cataract surgery.

How do Can-C eye drops actually reverse cataracts? This eye drop with a proprietary form of N-acetylcarnosine acts as a carrier for the di-peptide, carnosine. Carnosine which is naturally present throughout the human body decreases in level as each person advances in age which contributes to the onset of age-related problems such as cataract. Carnosine is both a known antioxidant and glycation inhibitor.

When it comes to ocular disease such as cataract, eye drops are the most direct delivery route to the source of the problem, which is the ocular lens. In the form of N-acetyl-carnosine, this normally insoluble lipid, carnosine, becomes lipid soluble thus gaining entrance into the lipid membrane of both the corneal and lens cells. This bioavailability of N-acetylcarnosine at the cellular level and its ultimate release of the carnosine molecule is what results in the reported beneficial effects on the eye.

What is the difference between N-acetylcarnosine and L-carnosine? Firstly, studies show that only N-acetylcarnosine is clinically proven to be suitable for eye use. Unfortunately L-carnosine when administered topically on its own is destroyed by the enzyme, carnosinase, a dipeptidase present in blood plasma. Due to this, simple L-carnosine eye drops are not suitable for topical application to the eye.

Can-C eye drops with N-acetylcarnosine are not only effective in the treatment of cataract but have been shown to be beneficial for other eye problems such as open-angle primary glaucoma, computer vision syndrome, dry eye syndrome, retinal disease, complications of diabetes mellitus and other systemic diseases, etc. Can-C has been reported to have virtually no negative side effects however when using other eye medications it is always recommended to consult first with your eye care specialist.

With the release of the Can-C product into the market supported by the clinical study results, various medical and pharmaceutical companies quickly released copycat cataract eye drop solutions containing N-acetylcarnosine. Dr. Mark Babizhayev the senior research investigator with Innovative Vision Products cautions consumers to be wary of these random formulations. The successful clinical results were dependent upon a highly specific purity factor of the raw material itself or rather, the precise content of the transition metal ion traces.

This patent protected refinement of the Can-C N-acetylcarnosine raw material, with a Japanese chemical company, is what ultimately resulted in the anti-cataract successes achieved and long term safety. It is only this proprietary form of N-acetylcarnosine raw material that will ever be used in Can-C and this purity factor remains proprietary to Innovative Vision Products. Fortunately there is a simple way for consumers to verify if they have purchased the clinically proven formula patented by Innovative Vision Products as the following statement is printed on each and every box, "Approved by Innovative Vision Products." To obtain the desired long-term efficacy and safety of this eye drops be sure to purchase Can-C and be sure to look for this statement on the side panel of the box "Approved by Innovative Vision Products (IVP)".
