Can-C Bringing Comfort To Your Contacts

September 14th, 2017

Millions of people around the world wear contact lenses.

Did you know that lactic acid can build-up behind your contact lens and lead to negative consequences?

Over-wearing contact lenses can result in damage from lactic acid within the cornea of the eye.  A contact lens is a foreign body that is placed in your eye, a man-made object that sits on top of the cornea and interacts with the inner tissue. The cornea is made of living breathing sells. It supplies most of the refractive power of the eyes.

There are metabolic changes in the human body every day. Waste material and debris from the cells in the cornea are excreted. We often find little bits in the corners of our eyes and debris can sometimes collate underneath a tight-fitting contact lens. This, in turn, can create a toxic environment for the cornea.

How should you deal with an acid attack behind your contact lens?

Can-C™ eye drops are the original N-acetylcarnosine eye drop formula. N-acetylcarnosine lubricant eye drops possess all-in-one universal antioxidant protective effects. Unlike a lot of eye drops, they contain naturally occurring nutrients that combine amino acids and proteins. Can-C™ eye drops inhibit the build-up of lactic acid behind your contact lenses.

When a lactic acid level is too high, swelling occurs in the cornea causing it to spread apart. Bacteria and viruses can easily be absorbed into potential spaces within the swollen cornea. This can cause an infection and or scarring. Wearing a lens for too long can lead to oxygen deprivation to the eye, new blood vessels will begin to grow into the cornea to try to find the oxygen that it needs. This can become a big problem.

Everybody is different when it comes to the types of lenses – the wear-time, if the wearer has allergies, the fit of the lens, cleaning and their disinfecting habits. If you wear contact lenses, you should feel good in them and your vision should be at peak performance. Contact lenses should never be uncomfortable but there are several reasons why they could be.

The most common reason for discomfort among lens wearers is the fit. Most people should be able to wear contact lenses for up to 12 hours comfortably. If the diameter of the lens and the curve isn’t the right size it can cause an issue. The lens should cover the cornea and should move slightly when you blink. A lot of wearers experience dryness, irritation and itchiness etc…

Reasons that can cause discomfort could be: 

  • Allergies – are a major reason why people feel irritation from their contact lenses
  • Type of lens – if you are wearing Rigid Gas Permeable, or RGP or GP lenses. It takes a while for wearers to adjust to the thickness of the material. Soft lenses are better if you are struggling with the adjustment
  • Cleaning solutions – solutions are for cleaning and disinfecting your lenses. However, some solutions can be an irritant and don’t remove build-ups
  • Wear-time – Like a lot of things, if you wear them for too long, they will cause discomfort

Your eyes can be irritated by dust, pollution, computer use, a busy work schedule and travel. All these things can leave the eyes feeling dry and tired.

Can-C™ Eye drops allows contact lenses to stay in the eye in comfort for a longer period of time, improving the quality of your vision.

But that’s not all…

N-acetylcarnosine has also shown efficacy in the non-surgical treatment of age related cataracts. N-acetylcarnosine is known to reverse the glycation process and decrease the occurrence of long-term complications of aging.

In a cohort in excess of 50,500 various patients seeking cutting-edge medical care, the N-acetylcarnosine topical eye drops 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 the IVP-designed new vision-saving drugs, including N-acetylcarnosine eye drops, promote health vision and prevent vision disability from senile cataracts, primary open-angle glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and aging. N-acetylcarnosine eye drop 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.

Reduce the risk of a lactic acid attack, the Can-C™ eye drops are like artificial tears that can eliminate discomfort, refresh, soothe and cleanse tired eyes.

The demand for this breakthrough product is snow balling as consumers around the world become aware of its benefits and value for money. The eye drops can be taken in conjunction with Visoluten, a retina peptide.

Look and feel your best with Can-C™ eye drops.
