  • Description

  • Ingredients
  • Age-related vision loss is due in large part to damaged proteins called AGEs (Advanced Glycation End-products). This can result in a loss of flexibility of the lens of the eye, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. AGEs may also affect the clarity of the cornea. Topical carnosine has been found to improve certain corneal disorders. Clearing out these dysfunctional proteins allows the eye cells to function better, with the result that the lens becomes clearer and more flexible.

    Ortho Eyes™ utilizes N-acetyl-carnosine, which does not degrade as quickly as regular carnosine and is able to penetrate into areas of the eye that are not as easily reached by regular carnosine, especially when applied topically as an eye drop. It has been proven to improve lens clarity and flexibility in people suffering from age-related cataracts. It also reduces glare problems in elderly drivers and can reduce the corneal haze associated with laser eye surgery. Studies have shown that subjects taking N-acetyl-carnosine eye drops either improved or maintained their vision while those not taking it worsened.


    In a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study, lubricating eye drops containing N-acetylcarnitine (NAC) was tested for glare sensitivity. 65 older adults with a cataract in one or both eyes were treated with NAC drops for 4 months. A follow-up assessment revealed that patients treated with the NAC drops had improvements in visual acuity and significant improvements in glare sensitivity compared to the control group.

    In a clinical study, vision was assessed before and after 9 months of treatment with a lubricant eye drop containing N-acetylcarnitine (NAC). 75 patients who were symptomatic with age-related cataracts, complaints of glare, and visual acuity of 20/40 or worse were included. After 9 months of treatment glare scored improved or returned to normal in most patients.

    N-Acetyl Cysteine eye drops were shown to have significant efficacy and safety for preventing and treating visual impairment in older adults. Overall, benefits included healthy vision and the prevention of visual issues such as cataracts, improvements to night time driving, healing from laser eye surgery, and aging in general.
