Can-C (NAC) Eye Drops for Cataracts. An eye drop called 'Can-C' that contains N-alpha-acetylcarnosine (NAC) claims to reverse, reduce, and slow senile cataract development. The FDA has yet to approve the product for cataract treatment.
Can-C™ is a proprietary form of N-acetylcarnosine, a highly specific intraocular released form of carnosine which acts as both a stabilizer and carrier for safe delivery into the aqueous humor of the eye. Once delivered into the aqueous humor this bio-identical molecule becomes highly active in the reduction of free radicals, oxidative stress and lens glycosylation.
