CATARACTS– Is there a Cure?

By Rob Mohr


eye-external“Rob, where are we going?” asked my wife as we drove south from Asheville to Brunswick, Georgia last December.

“To Charleston and then down I-95 to Brunswick.”

“Well, we are now going north on I-77 toward Charlotte.”

“Uh, I thought the sign said Charleston.”

As I took the exit ramp to head back to I-26, I realized that my ability to read road signs had deteriorated, and that the drops I had been putting in my eyes twice each day to remove cataracts might not be working after all. My hope was fading.

In July, 2008, my eye doctor, Marvin Walker, had warned me, “Rob, with these new lenses, your vision is only correctable to 20/30, so when you come back in December, you need to schedule enough time for surgery to remove the cataract from your left eye.”

“I understand. However, between now and then, I would like to try some eye drops that contain something called 1% N-acetyl-carnosine (NAC) that many Europeans are using to dissolve cataracts.”

“That’s fine with me,” he answered. “I’ve read a bit about the drops as well. It would be nice to know if they work. Try them, and we’ll see how you are doing in December.”

As we entered Dr. Walker’s office last December, Marvin’s “Let’s see how you are doing,” was quickly followed by “Rob, your problem is that the lenses I prescribed for you in July are now too strong. Your right eye is three stops too strong, and your left, two stops. The cataract in your right eye is almost entirely gone, and the one in your left eye is considerably reduced. Your eyes are again correctable to 20/20. I recommend that you continue to use the drops between now and next December to see if your left eye will return to normal.”

Since my visit with Dr. Walker in December, I have found two reliable journals that support my own experience. Dr. Jonathan V. Wright wrote in the Well Being Journal, (Vol.17, No. 5, page 42, Sept/Oct, 2008), “After six months, 90 percent of the N-acetyl-carnosine (NAC) treated eyes showed improvement ranging from 7% to 100% in visual acuity (how well you see), and 89% showed a 27% to 100% improvement in glare sensitivity. Those with no N-acetyl-carnosine (NAC) showed significant worsening.

A second article in the Journal of Nutrition and Healing (July 2008), confirmed that faithful, twice-a-day use of the NAC drops stopped the development of cataracts, and in most cases reduced the size of existing cataracts. Additionally, there are a number of web sites that promote and evaluate the drops. The drops I used were sold under the label ‘Bright Eyes lll.’ Other similar products include ‘Can – C’ and ‘Visual Ocuity’.

A few days later, wearing my new glasses, I walked out of Dr. Walker’s office into the sunlight. My wife exclaimed, “Rob, your eyes are blue again!”

For those in our Lakeside community approaching possible cataract surgery, my hope is that my experience may lead you to give these healing drops a trial. It is very important to use the drops as indicated and lie quietly on your back for a couple of minutes while the drops are absorbed. Let me know about your experience—this is an important change in options for all who suffer from cataracts.
