Dry Eye Syndrome Programs

inadequate tear film

Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a common condition affecting nearly 30% of adults. The eyes’ natural tear film is a vital covering that protects the eye’s surface, cleansing the eyes of irritants and keeping them well lubricated. If you don’t generate enough tears, or if your tears are of low quality, you may suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome.

  • Lubricating Eye Drops with antioxidant N-Acetyl-Carnosine soothes eyes against exposure to sun, wind, and other irritants.
  • The most helpful thing you can do to support Dry Eye Syndrome is to keep the eyes well lubricated. Can-C™ Eye Drops help support overall eye health by improving the healing response in the tear ducts, addressing the underlying cause of Dry Eye Syndrome.
  • Healthy eyes contain high levels of the natural antioxidant L-Carnosine. Interestingly, the eyes of those suffering from degenerative ocular diseases were found to be highly deficient in L-Carnosine. Can-C™ Eye Drops help lubricate the eyes and provide targeted antioxidant support for those who suffer from eye discomfort.
  • The prime ingredient in Can-C™ is a proprietary form of N-Acetyl-Carnosine (NAC), which acts as both a stabilizer and carrier for L-Carnosine, safely delivering it into the fluid area of the eye surrounding the lens, allowing Carnosine to access the areas it needs to in order to act as a natural and highly effective antioxidant that protects and heals the eye.
  • Years of research went into identifying the right purity level of N-Acetyl-Carnosine (NAC) to ensure safety as well as optimal results. This purity level is proprietary to our Can-C™ N-Acetyl-Carnosine Eye Drops, so look for the approved Can-C™ hologram on the box of any Can-C™ eye drop product prior to applying to the eyes.

• Same benefits as Standard Program, with accelerated results PLUS:

• Nac-C Plus™ Capsules enhance the effectiveness and duration of Can-C™ Eye Drops’ activity in the eye, thereby speeding up the healing response. In addition, Nac-C Plus™ Capsules reduce oxidation in the eyes and may facilitate a healing response in the eyes of Cataract patients.

• Nac-C Plus™ Capsules work together with Can-C™ Eye Drops to support and speed up the healing process by keeping the lens of the eye safe from degradation, delivering essential nutrients, enhancing DNA repair, and reducing oxidative stress that could otherwise inhibit the natural healing process. These capsules include natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been clinically proven to help improve eye health and fight common eye disease like Cataracts.

• Ingredients in Nac-C Plus™ Capsules like N-Acetyl-Cysteine, L-Histidine, and L-Carnosine have been show to work synergistically to improve vision by increasing glutathione levels and acting as antioxidants to spare the lens of the eye from oxidative stress, keeping it flexible and clear. Vitamin E and Zinc can also decrease risk of Cataracts and other age-related eye disease.

A higher (loading) dose of Can-C™ Eye Drops is recommended in the first few months of use to quickly re-establish optimal N-Acetyl-Carnosine (NAC) levels in the eyes; two drops applied in the morning to each eye (4 drops total) and two drops in the evening to each eye (4 drops total). The quicker these levels can be elevated in your eyes the sooner you will begin to see visual improvements. This initial (loading dosing period) lasts anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending upon the severity of your eye condition.

Once you begin to see notable improvements in brightness and clarity you may be confident that you have effectively re-established optimal NAC levels in your eyes, but the improvements don’t stop there. The good news is that once the NAC levels have been re-established to optimal levels in the eyes it is very easy to keep them there at half the cost. After three to six months of consistent use, only half the recommended Can-C dose is needed to effectively maintain these new levels, and the vision improvements will continue.

While many report visual improvements in as little as three months’ time, generally the most dramatic improvements will be reached between six and twelve months of consistent use. Once optimal results have been achieved, the maintenance dose of only one to two drops daily will prevent the return of the Cataracts and continue to support and improve the health of your eyes.

The benefits of Can-C™ are long-lasting, however if the drops are discontinued, the same deficiency that allowed the ocular condition to form in the first place will likely return again. Fortunately, by simply using a minimal amount of the product consistently, the good results can be maintained at less than half the initial cost.

Can-C™ eye drops initial loading dose: two drops applied in the morning to each eye (4 drops total) and two drops in the evening to each eye (4 drops total).

Can-C™ eye drops maintenance dose (general eye health support and prevention): After 3 to 6 months of use you will only need to use 1-2 drops of Can-C™ in each eye daily, with a one week pause from use every two months. The product will last a very long time at this level of usage.

Advanced Program Protocol
Nac-C Plus™ Capsules dose: take 2 capsules daily Nac-C Plus™ Capsules. When used in conjunction with Can-C™ eye drops, Nac-C Plus capsules increase the length of time that Can-C™ eye drops stay active in the eye by inhibiting the breakdown of the L-carnosine that has been topically administered through the drops. This sustained effect significantly enhances free radical protection and decreases the oxidative environment within the eye, allowing for a faster healing response.

Independent clinical results are based on consistent daily use.

Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a complex and often frustrating condition. If left unresolved it can lead to far more serious eye conditions.

Fortunately, there are several ways to alleviate dry eye syndrome and reduce the risk of vision loss. In this article, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, avoidable risks, and treatments for dry eye syndrome.

Why are my eyes watering all the time?

Contrary to what you might think, excessive eye watering is one of the primary  symptom of Dry Eye Syndrome. This is due to a defensive mechanism in the eyes that can lead to an overproduction of the watery part of your tears. However, these watery tears evaporate too fast to alleviate the underlying dry eye problem. The eyes are literally crying out for relief…

What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a common condition affecting nearly 30% of adults. Dry eye is not an illness, but rather the result of various stress factors that cause tear film instability. Sadly, if left untreated, Dry Eye Syndrome can become a chronic condition leading to far more serious degenerative eye conditions…

Why is Dry Eye a serious concern?

At first, dry eye syndrome might just seem like a minor annoyance, but it can gradually worsen over time until it severely affects your quality of vision. Abnormal tear film, poor tear quality, or not enough tears can lead to ocular surface inflammation and cause critical damage to the eye surface. Common dry eye symptoms such as blurry vision, light sensitivity, burning, itching, eye fatigue, foreign body sensation, redness of the eyelids and excessive tearing, should not be ignored as they have been shown to increase the risk of developing far more serious vision problems, such as cataract, corneal abrasion, glaucoma, and even exacerbate macular degeneration.

How Do Tears Work?

Tears fulfill an indispensable function in maintaining the health of the eye. The eyes’ natural tear film contains a mixture of saltwater, oils and mucus. When we blink, muscles in our eyelids squeeze the tear glands to deliver more tears. In addition, the process of blinking, distributes the tear layer evenly across the surface of the eyes. This essential coating delivers oxygen and nutrients to they eyes, protects the eyes’ surface from abrasion and infection, cleanses the eyes of irritants and keeps them well lubricated to prevent corneal damage.

What Causes Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eye syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors including:

  • Medical Conditions such as allergies or immune system disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes can affect tear production
  • Medications such as antihistamines, antidepressants, diuretics, and blood pressure medications
  • Laser vision surgery which may temporarily affect the eyes ability to product tears
  • Environmental factors like smoke or smog contain small particles that aggravate the eyes
  • Dry climates like those in cold areas, deserts and airplanes as well as breezy or windy environments such as those caused by an air conditioner or a ceiling fan
  • The normal aging process as tear production declines with age
  • Hormonal changes in our body, like those accompanying menopause
  • Staring at a computer or mobile screen tends to decrease your blink rate
  • Nutritional factors such as Vitamin A or Omega-3 deficiency
  • Dehydration can affect the amount of fluid available to produce tears
  • Long-term use of contact lenses that may obstruct oxygen to the cornea.

What Are the Best Treatment Options for Dry Eye?

  1. Bacteria reduction: Those who suffer with dry eye unknowingly carry a higher than desirable bacteria load in their eyes.  Elevated bacteria weakens the natural repair mechanisms within the eye elevating oxidative stress and inflammation. Using an eyewash once daily to keep bacteria load in check is one of the most beneficial steps toward restoring homeostasis to the eyes and it feels lovely. You can purchase an eyewash kit at any local pharmacy. Many people report noticing vision improvements just from this step alone because when you have happy, stress-free eyes they perform better for you.
  2. N-Acetyl-Carnosine: This specific ocular antioxidant has been shown in clinical studies to dramatically counter inflammation and reverse oxidation restoring the eye’s natural ability to heal and repair itself. Can-C™ Eye Drops with N-acetyl-carnosine have been shown to support natural tear production, possibly due to restoring health to the tear ducts themselves thereby addressing one of the underlying causes of Dry Eye Syndrome. While Can-C eye drops have been primarily known for reversing cataract related conditions over the last twenty years this gentle healing eye drop has been shown to benefit nearly every ocular condition favorably with its remarkable ability to support, improve and restore overall eye health.
  3. Lubrication: Keeping your eyes adequately lubricated with artificial tears is a simple and effective way to further support Dry Eye Syndrome.  Therefore, In addition to the use of Can-C™ eye drops the use of an inexpensive preservative-free or low-preservative lubricant eye drop during the day in between your Can-C™ eye drops can further reduce the stress load to the eyes allowing for an accelerated healing response. Apply your eye lubricant 5 – 10 minutes prior to your application of Can-C™ eye drops in the mornings and then again multiple times throughout the day.  Uptake of the N-Acetyl-carnosine ingredient in Can-C™ will be improved if the eyes are not dry and stressed at the time of application.
  4. Amino Acid Support: Lastly, research has shown that oral consumption of specific amino acids can further reduce inflammation and optimize healing response to the eyes.  Nac-C Plus capsules with five powerful amino acids were designed to be taken with Can-C eye drops to accelerate healing, improve overall outcomes, and restore health to the eyes.

After several weeks of such a protocol you should notice quite an improvement in the way your eyes feel as well as notable vision improvements. Once you see and feel improvement you may reduce the number of times you apply your eye lubricant during the day but if you start noticing any decline or feelings of irritation you will want to go back to the multiple lubricant applications daily.  The eyes have a remarkable ability to heal themselves if given the right support and a little patience.

Clinical impact of inflammation in dry eye disease

Study: Clinical impact of inflammation in dry eye disease: proceedings of the ODISSEY group meeting

Summary: Dry eye disease (DED) is a common, multifactorial ocular condition with major impact on vision and quality of life. It is now well recognized that the pathophysiology of chronic DED can include a cycle of inflammation involving both innate and adaptive immune responses. Recently, in vitro/in vivo models have been used to obtain a better understanding of DED-related inflammatory processes at molecular/cellular levels although they do not truly reproduce the complex and chronic hallmarks of human DED. In clinical DED research, advanced techniques such as impression cytology, conjunctival biopsy, in vivo confocal microscopy and multiplex tear analyses have allowed an improved assessment of inflammation in DED patients. This was supported by the identification of reliable inflammatory markers including matrix metalloproteinase-9, human leucocyte antigen-DR or intercellular adhesion molecule-1 in tears and impression cytology samples. One of the current therapeutic strategies focuses on breaking the inflammatory cycle perpetuating the ocular surface disease, and preclinical/clinical research has led to the development of promising anti-inflammatory compounds. We now have a clearer understanding of the inflammatory processes involved in DED, and there is hope that the still emerging preclinical/clinical findings will be translated into new and highly effective therapies for patients in the near future.


Dry eye characterized to have clinically-evident inflammation

Study: Updated definition and classification of dry eye disease: Renewed proposals using the nominal group and Delphi techniques
Date published: October 2, 2020
Authors: Stefano Barabino, Pasquale Aragona, Antonio di Zazzo, more…
Summary: The aim of our research was to obtain expert consensus for updated definition and classification of dry eye disease using formal methodology. The nominal group technique (NGT) involved a steering committee of four ophthalmologists began with collection of ideas followed by group discussion. The ideas were collated, refined, and voted upon. The main characteristics considered, each with different degrees of severity in types I, II, and III, were the ability or not of the ocular surface to re-equilibrate itself, frequency of symptoms, presence of inflammation, epithelial alterations, and possible alterations in the quality of vision. This was followed by three rounds of a “mini-Delphi” involving an expert panel of 13 ophthalmologists, with the last round including all 17 ophthalmologists. Consensus in the final round of voting (⩾75% of votes) was reached on the definition of dry eye disease and on criteria for its classification in three forms. Type I is a transient and reversible form with subclinical inflammation, possible epithelial alterations, and occasional alterations in vision. Type II is a recurrent form characterized by a reduced ability to re-equilibrate the ocular surface, frequent symptoms and alterations in vision with clinically-evident inflammation, and clear evidence of epithelial alterations. Type III is a chronic form with inability to re-equilibrate the ocular surface and accompanied by clinically-evident and chronic inflammation, persistent epithelial alterations, and frequent alterations in quality of vision. The vast majority of patients with dry eye disease can be easily classified into one of these three forms. Dry eye disease definition was updated accordingly.

My eyes haven’t felt this good for months!

I spend too many hours looking at computer screens for my job, which drys our my eyes. I had tried cheap eye drops from the drug store, but they didn’t help as much as I’d hoped. Then I found your site, and tried the Can-C Lubricant eye drops, and after a few doses, my eyes felt normal again! I love these.
