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. 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 maintains that NAC can 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 and are often referred to as cataract eye drops.

How To Use Can-C Eye Drops?

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.

What Is In The Box?

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.

How come there are cheaper Can-C drops on some sites like eBay?

There have been numerous customers that have contacted us to let us know that there are sellers on eBay selling fake versions of the Can-C Eye Drops. We do not know where these have come from and they are not authorized to be selling them at such low prices. Beware of cheaper imitations that could burn or sting your eyes.

Can the drop be used on dogs?

According to IVP, dogs lack the enzyme carnosinase that breaks down carnosine in the lens. They state that in animal studies, the drops produce a "melting snow" effect quite rapidly, indicating that these drops work better and faster on animals like dogs.

How long has Can-C Eye Drops been on the market?

Can-C has been sold since 2001 with more than 500,000 bottles sold.

Can Can-C Eye Drops be taken in conjunction with other common eye supplements such as lutein and zeaxanthin/astaxanthin?

It is not recommended. They interfere with the eye drops.

Are Can-C eye drops ok for vegans?

They are 100% plant-based with no animal ingredients and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Will Can-C eye drops work even though I wear contact lenses?

Yes, they are a lubricant eye drop and help with contact lens comfort.

How do I store Can-C Eye Drops?

Can-C is stable for lengthy periods at room temperature. It is recommended that you keep them in the warmer part of the fridge. The opened bottle should be discarded 28 days after opening.

Can Can-C Eye Drops be spoiled if it is frozen?

It is possible that some spoilage will have occurred and it is not recommended to freeze.

Highly Recommend
I was told I needed cataract surgery and at the same time had heard about eye drops that could possibly save me the hassle of needing an operation. After using these drops for 2 months I was told by my ophthalmologist that I no longer need the surgery - yay! Thank you for the great service.

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.
