What is CAN-C Eye Drops?

Can-C Eye Drops is a unique lubricant cataract eye drop containing a patented pure form of 1% N-Acetylcarnosine (NAC). They were invented by Dr. Mark Babizhayev of Innovative Vision Products (IVP). They are also known as NAC Eye Drops.

What is N-Acetylcarnosine?

N-Acetylcarnosine is an N-acetylated form of L-carnosine and is also known as NAC. Carnosine is one of the body's natural antioxidants and is essential for the normal functioning of cells.

Dr. Mark Babizhayev perfected the specific purity level of N-Acetylcarnosine and has patented it.

According to Babizhayev, the reason it is included in the Can-C Eye drops is so that it can reach the aqueous humor where it may function as an antioxidant in the lens. Babizhayev maintained that NAC may help reduce cross-linking and glycation in the lens.

The unique stability of the formula also helps to limit the L-carnosine from being broken down by the carnosinase enzyme. This helps the carnosine to reach the aqueous humor remain active in the lens as long as possible.

Other forms of eye drops that contain NAC, do not contain the same unique patented form of N-Acetylcarnosine used by IVP. Can-C Eye Drops have soared in popularity since their invention.

The enclosed insert must be read carefully prior to use, to ensure the drops are administered correctly.

Apply 1 drop in each eye twice per day or as advised by your physician. You may find it more helpful to use the drops 3-4 times a day.

Keep the eye closed for 60 seconds after application without blinking.

  1. Lean your head back while looking directly upwards. You may need to sit on a chair for support while you do this.
  2. Administer 1 drop and close the eye ensuring you do not blink or open the eye for 60 seconds. This allows the active ingredients to be absorbed fully into the eye tissues. Blinking can cause the drop to leak out of the eye which will waste the product.
  3. Repeat this procedure for the next eye and for each further drop that is required.

To Open Eye Drop Bottle

  1. Remove the lower ring.
  2. Tighten the cap on the nozzle by turning it clockwise.
  3. The spike in the cap will pierce the nozzle.
  4. Remove the cap by turning it anti-clockwise.
  5. Dispense drops by applying gentle pressure.


2x5ml Can-C Eye Drop bottles are included. There is one bottle for each eye and 1 pack is designed to last 1 month. If you need to dose more frequently (i.e. 4 times a day), then one box will last for a shorter time.

Good for dogs
My dog has very bad dry eye from a bite to his eye socket when another dog atacked him, so was put on Maxidex - a steroid. Unfortunately such steroids can cause cataracts and he is now blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other. I started him on the Can-C and although I can not expect miracles it has stopped any further damage and the expected damage to the eye from a dried-out cataract has not occurred. So I give him Maxidex only if his eyes are very red now, and keep up the Can-C and expect that the least it will do is keep his eyes in good moist condition.

very soothing, very helpful
I am reviewing CAN-C eyedrops. I recently re-ordered CAN-C eyedrops. I have been using them each day for a few years now. I find they are very soothing. Also, I used to suffer from dry eye syndrome and I find daily use of these drops has coincided with that problem going away. CAN-C eyedrops are expensive for the quantity in each vial, but I still find using these drops is very helpful.

Use this for cataracts on dog
I was using a stronger Can C for my dogs cataracts. This became too expensive to buy only from my vet. I came across this lower strength Can C and decided it was worth a try as my dog was nearly blind. This is still clearing my dogs cataracts and he is not bumping into things now. I have still got a way to go before they clear up more. I use this twice a day for my small dog. It will be long life as when I stopped using this the cartaracts were coming back. Highly recommend this even though it is for humans. It is safe for dogs and cats too. It can't make them blind when they already are.
