Can-c eyedrops

QuestionsCan-c eyedrops
Anonymous asked 6 years ago
From personal poit of view, the use of Can-c eyedrops in advanced cataracts did not dissolve them, maybe because they are effective mostly in beginning cataracts.  I would like to ask you if Can-c eyedrops could do any  harm to the eyes (eye pressure, retina etc) or if they could accelerate cataracts formation. I know that they are sold as eye lubricant in order to soothing the eyes, but I would like your opinion and confirmation.
Thank you

Clinical studies on the IAS website document Can-C’s ability to reverse cataracts.  However, as you surmise, they are most effective when instituted early on.  In order for a natural substance to receive approval for “drug claims” by the FDA, studies costing many millions of dollars are required.  Consequently, they are sold only as “eye lubricants,” to avoid arousing the ire of the FDA.

I am another “case study of one,” who had a cataract in my right eye, but was unable at the time to begin using Can-C. Despite using Can-C, the cataract progressed to the point that I had no usable vision in that eye, and had surgery three years ago.  At that time, I was told there was a cataract in the other eye, which would also require surgery “someday.”  

However, three years later, that cataract has disappeared, which I believe is due to continued use of Can-C eyedrops and capsules.  

Clinical studies by Dr. Babizev, the designer of Can-C, show that Can-C eyedrops help reduce increased ocular pressure, but do not replace other anti-glaucoma eyedrops such as latanaprost, timolol, and/or brominidine.  

Substances such as n-acetyl carnosine (the active ingredient in Can-C), and aminoguanidine have shown the ability to delay or reverse early cataracts, but are less effective after Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) have formed.
