What Is It?
Ortho• Eyes is a revolutionary and natural solution for aging eyes. The active ingredient is N-acetyl-L-Carnosine. Carnosine is an amino acid known to help reduce damaged, dysfunctional proteins called AGEs (advanced glycation end-products). AGEs render tissues dysfunctional, resulting in various health problems. Acetylated carnosine is better absorbed than regular carnosine and is extremely effective when applied directly to the eye as an eye drop.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Ortho• Eyes drops help improve vision in age-related eye disorders such as cataracts. The formation of AGEs in the eyes is a significant problem in cataract formation and age-related macular degeneration. Studies have demonstrated that topical N-acetyl-carnosine eye drops alleviate eye tiredness, improve vision, reduce cataract severity, relieve corneal dystrophy, hasten recovery from corrective eye surgery and prevent corneal haze formation after cataract surgery. For the first time, a non-surgical treatment is available for those whose vision is slowly fading behind the curse of lens opacities, the most common cause of treatable blindness and the reason behind 1.3 million US operations per year - the most common surgical procedure in the elderly.
Who Should Take It?
Ortho• Eyes may help improve the vision of those with cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and possibly other eye disorders. Those about to undergo cataract surgery or laser eye surgery can recover more quickly and fully with the help of Ortho• Eyes. Ortho• Eyes may also benefit those with aging eyes and the rest of us with healthy eyes who want to keep them that way.
“N-acetylcarnosine topical eyedrops target therapy was demonstrated to have significant efficacy, safety, and good tolerability for the prevention and treatment of visual impairment in this older population with relatively stable patterns of causes for blindness and visual impairment. Overall, accumulated study data demonstrate that… N-acetylcarnosine eyedrops, promote health vision and prevent vision disability from senile cataracts, primary open-angle glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and aging. N-acetylcarnosine eyedrop therapy is the crown jewel of the anti-aging medical movement and revolutionizes early detection, treatment, and rejuvenation of aging-related eye-disabling disorders. N-acetylcarnosine, as an innovative medical science tool and component of the home medicine and alternative medicine approaches, has the potential to alleviate visual impairment and its associated social, economic, and political woes for an aging population.” (Babizhayev et al., 2009)
