NAC Eye Drops
How important are your eyes to you? Most of us would never want to go without the use of our eyes. The quality of our sight influences every step we take. Because our eyes are also our window on the world and the first source of knowledge, discovering new advancements in eye treatments should be of great interest to anyone with eyes. This is especially true if you happen to be over the age of 60. –Or if your eyes are in need of a little extra TLC.

We can do something to outsmart some of the ravages of time on our bodies. The process of aging need not take us by surprise. In fact, with the help of advanced biomedical science, there is hope for the aging to face a future of youthful vitality and health. That includes eye health. It makes sense to prioritize one’s eyes as our principal source of knowledge. The best way to do that is to protect the vision we have and maintain it.
Cataracts – The Biggest Cause Of Blindness
If we consider that cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide with 28,000 new cases being added daily to the toll, cataracts are a widespread scourge today. Already, 17 million are affected by it. If you are over 60, you could be one of the 20% who have the beginning of a cataract in one or both eyes. For people over 75, the figure climbs to 80% of the population.
Until now, the only available treatment for cataracts has been surgery, which requires highly-trained doctors and expensive operating facilities. For this reason, many go untreated.
What Is A Cataract?
There is a crystalline lens behind the colored iris of your eye. This lens sharpens your focus, sending a picture onto your retina. It’s the flexibility of this lens that affords the varying range of vision. This flexibility stiffens with age, much like the rest of our body and so the range of vision shrinks. There is less accommodation (the process of changing the shape of the crystalline lens).
This crystalline lens is made up of many lens fibers that are layered tightly together and held into position with radial bundles of zonular fibers connected to the middle. All of that is encased in an elastic capsule.
When the crystallins, which are water-soluble structural proteins, begin to gather together at random, this forms a nuclear cataract. That’s the cloudy haze inside the lens of the eye that distorts vision. As it grows, it shuts out and scatters light that is trying to pass through the lens. This is the reason images are no longer in focus, colours are duller and halos appear. Bright objects throw off a distracting glare.
What Causes Cataracts?
- Sunlight (being overexposed to ultraviolet radiation)
- High Blood Pressure
- Use of Corticosteroids
- Kidney Disease
Can Cataracts Really Disappear?
For many people and in many cases, the answer is, “Yes!” It has been confirmed with research that N-acetyl carnosine and carnosine not only effectively treat existing cataracts but do, in fact, prevent them. This is one reason to have regular eye examinations. It’s a lot easier to prevent the growth of new cataracts than the dispel them once they have taken hold. In fact, if you are over 60 years of age, it’s a good idea to begin using NAC Eye Drops to prevent the onset of cataracts.
What Is NAC?
NAC Eye Drops provide those suffering from cataracts with a breakthrough alternative to cataract surgery. This cataract melting formula, discovered by Dr. Babizhayev and his research team, delivers powerful anti-oxidant benefits and has generated amazing curative results for people around the world.
NAC is the name we commonly use to refer to N-Acetylcarnosine. N-Acetylcarnosine is a naturally occurring compound chemically related to the dipeptide carnosine. Other than the fact that it carries an additional acetyl group, the NAC molecular structure is identical to carnosine. Carnosine is found in the heart and skeletal muscles and is believed to have anti-oxidant properties.
Oxidative stress is one of the implications for the chemical reactions that lead to destructive age related cross linking and aggregation of proteins. Unlike most dipeptides, carnosine is not derived from proteins, and is soluble in water but not in lipids (fats). As a result of this characteristic, carnosine has difficulty penetrating through cell membranes made of lipids. However, N-acetylcarnosine is relatively soluble in lipids and in water and can therefore pass through cell membranes. Once inside the cellular level, NAC is broken down into carnosine and the benefits can be derived.
Since NAC Eye Drops have N-acetylcarnosine, they are highly resistant to break down and have slow release characteristics making them highly effective in treating cataracts. These drops will deliver a powerful anti-oxidant boost to your eyes, protecting you from the potential for cataracts and improving existing cataract condition.
NAC (N-acetyl carnosine) improves vision by reversing the development of the cataract which allows increased light to the lens.
How Do NAC Eye Drops Work?
NAC restores the proteins in the lens by removing cross-linked carbonyl groups and functions as a “molecular water pump” which lowers intraocular pressure.
NAC Eye Drops have been proven 100% effective in primary senile cataract and 80% effective in mature senile cataract. Applying NAC Eye Drops to the conjunctiva (the membrane covering the eye) causes a decrease in normal intra-ocular pressure and reduces prostaglandin-induced ocular hypertension (related to glaucoma) in rabbits.
Background And Research:
The breakthrough behind NAC took place in the 1990’s as a result of research done by Dr. Mark Babizhayev and his Russian research team. During early experiments performed at the Moscow Helmholtz Research Institute for Eye Diseases, it was shown that NAC (1% concentration), was able to pass from the cornea to the aqueous humor after about 15 to 30 minutes.
In another study NAC was reported as effective in improving vision in cataract patients and reduced the appearance of cataract. The authors called this ‘a snow melting effect’ referring to the slow reduction of the cataractous tissues in the lens following the use of NAC eye drops. Transparency of the lens improved after using NAC eye drops at a concentration of 1% twice a day for four months. These results were relevant to all forms of cataract, mild or severe, although other studies found the most beneficial effect was in relation to early forms of cataract. This was a landmark study, which caused many commercial operators to manufacture their own brands of anti-cataract NAC eye drops.
In a 2004 trial of 90 canine eyes with cataracts, led by Dr. Babizhayev, NAC was reported to have performed better than placebo in positively affecting lens clarity. The Babizhayev group later published a placebo-controlled clinical trial of NAC in 76 human eyes with mild to advanced cataracts and reported similar positive results for NAC.
In a long-term study, researchers observed the changes in lens clarity over a 6 to 24 month period for 49 volunteers. The average age of the participants was 65, and all suffered from senile cataracts ranging from minimal to advanced opacification (clouding of the lens). The patients received either a 1% solution of NAC eye drops or a placebo, as two drops twice a day in each eye. The patients were then evaluated after two months and again after six months. The evaluations consisted of ophthalmoscopy (glare test), stereocinematagraphic (slit-image) and retro-illumination (photography). A computerized digital analysis then displayed the light scattering and absorbing effects of the centers of each lens.
Here is the outcome after six months:
88.9% of the patients who were treated with NAC had an improvement of glare sensitivity (lowest individual score was a 27% improvement, all the way up to a 100% improvement)
41.5% had a significant improvement of the transmissivity of the lens
90% showed an improvement in visual acuity
The patients in the placebo group exhibited little change in eye quality at 6 months and a gradual deterioration at 12 to 24 months.
This study also showed that at 24 months the NAC treated group (who already had significant improvement to the quality of their eyesight), sustained these results with continued use of the NAC eye drops. There were no significant side effects noted in any cases throughout the two-year period.
Another Russian study evaluated two groups of 49 patients (with the average age being 65), who had advanced symptoms of cataracts. After a 24 month course of treatment, the group that was treated with the eye drops had a cumulative positive change when compared with the group that did not receive the eye drops.
NAC Improves Night Vision
Many drivers find night driving particularly dangerous because of nighttime glare. Nighttime glare can cause streetlight, headlights and stop lights to become nearly blinding for those who suffer from it. When it hits the lens of the eye, bright streaks of light pierce the eyes, reducing the contrast between light and dark areas. Users of NAC Eye Drops report a dramatic improvement in night vision after using NAC Eye Drops consistently. It’s believed that NAC works like a windshield wiper to remove buildup on the lens of the aged eye resulting in a reduction in nighttime glare.
Benefits of NAC Eye Drops
- Prevents Cataracts
- Eliminates Cataracts that are Forming
- Heals Corneal Erosion
- Treats Glaucoma
- Reduces Intraocular Pressure
- Heals Post-Herpetic Epitheliopathy
- Heals Primary and Secondary Corneal Dystrophy
How Much Should I Use?
Studies show that two drops in each eye twice a day over a 24-month period offers a unique solution to control cataracts. So far, there is no data to show if one drop in each eye would be as effective. What is known is that maximum improvement has been obtained within three to five months of use. For full benefits, maintain the dosage.
NAC As A Preventative
We recommend NAC Eye Drops as a preventative for cataracts but not as a miracle cure. Dramatic results were experienced by half the study cases of NAC. However, most experienced a great improvement in their vision as well as a stabilization of the growth in cataracts.
Using Nac Eye Drops before the onset of cataracts may not only prevent the cataract from forming, but possibly prevent and correct other eye problems.
As a preventative: Use one drop of NAC eye drops in each eye once daily.
For existing cataracts: Use two drops in each eye twice daily.
When cataracts have been reduced to an acceptable level, use a maintenance dose of one drop twice daily.
The annual cost of age-related cataracts in the US is about $3.5 billion. When we consider the high cost of surgery compared to the low cost and minimal risk of trying NAC Eye Drops, it only makes sense. Consider giving them a try before taking a risk on invasive eye surgery. You may be pleasantly surprised to discover that the surgery will become unnecessary by using NAC Eye Drops instead.
NAC Eye Drops are natural, soothing, revitalizing and gentle. Used as directed, there is very little to no risk of harmful side effects.
The Best Kind Of Medicine
It has been noted that the best kind of medicine is preventative medicine. The healing, nourishing properties of NAC Eye Drops are like chicken soup for your eyes. NAC starts working from within the eyes to open your window on the world. NAC Eye Drops go to work, expunging toxic build-up, relieving irritation and preventing cataract invasion.
Our Precious Gift
It’s wise to have regular eye examinations. As well as having your eyes tested for vision, the test for cataracts is a retinal exam. Your eye doctor will put drops in your eyes to dilate the pupils (open your pupils wide). This makes it easier to examine the back of your eyes (retina). Using an ophthalmoscope (a slit lamp), your eye doctor can examine your lens for signs of a cataract.
One of our most precious gifts is our eyesight. Don’t allow cataracts to steal yours.
