  1. I want so desperately to try these drops, but there are so many can-c drops that I want to be sure that the drops I buy are the original drops developed by the Russian doctor that proved results. i don’t expect any company to tell me that their drops are not the best but just a touch of honesty; to know that these are the original formula would be wonderful, and i will order them today or when i receive a reply. i need them badly.

    1. Hi:

      Yes indeed. These are the original, authentic Can-C drops approved by Innovative Vision Products. You are smart to ask in that many companies claim that they have the authentic Can-C eye drops, but sell something else.


      1. Hello Robert I too was recommended for eye surgery for cataracts. I really don’t want to go through with it. I am considering the eye drops. Is this the phone number to order them? I am 65 and one eye is getting bad. I’m also taking vitamins to reduce free radical damage. Thank you.

        1. I can say that I have used these drops – both the lubricant version and the original version and my vision is better. I don’t have the light sensitivity I had and my night vision is much better. car headlights coming at me used to be painful, but now i can keep my eyes straight ahead on the road and the lights don’t bother me. I’m not getting the glare anymore. but you have to stick with the drops at at the same time reduce your intake or eliminate refined sugar. The research showed that it is sugar that creates a protein that deposits on the lens of the eye. I am also trying to avoid cataract surgery for as long as I can. I prefer the lubricant version simply because my eyes tend to get dry and the drops are so soothing.

  2. Dear Robert

    I am on insulin for my diabetics and my eyesight is getting worse. My doctor said my cataract is bad and that I need to go for eye operation. I am looking at other options to surgery.

    Do you think that with my advanced diabetics , will Can-C eye drops clear my cataract completely. I ordered 2 bottles of Can-C from you about 2 years ago. But I could not proceed with further purchase because of my impeding financial constraints.

    I need your advise.

    Thank you


    1. Hi Rajinder:

      Research reports application as directed shows approximately 95% success. Results are not 100% but odds are certainly in your favor. Evidence is that people with diabetes do experience relief, but it often takes longer because of the sugar spiking which causes flares of inflammation.


  3. My 16 year old cat has the beginning of cataracts and I thought I would get her the surgery, figuring it would be as easy as when humans get surgery to remove the cataracts. From what I’ve read it is very invasive and incredibly expensive. I don’t want to put her through the trauma of surgery at her age and am considering trying the Can-C eye drops.

    How long would I have to administer this to her? Will she experience any pain when the drops are administered?

    1. Hi:

      Average time in general to see results is 3 months. It can take much longer some dogs and cats depending on their overall health condition.

      Research shows positive outcomes in approximately 95% of subjects studied. Once it clears sufficiently, researchers recommend you reduce the dose back to one drop a day to keep inflammation under control.

      If the conditions are very acidic in the beginning there can be slight stinging (not painful) which resolves after 2-3 days of use
      (and the acidic conditions are resolved).


  4. My 11 year old poodle has diabetis I give him is insulin 2x a day he now has cataracts do you think can c drops would help how often should I use the drops

  5. Hello

    I have a dog that has dry eye and requires Ketorolac drops and Tacrolimus Ointment in his eyes to manage the condition. He also is starting to get cataracts and having night vision issues. Can Can-C be used with his existing eye medications without causing any issues?

  6. Does this work for eye floaters? I had a macular hole in my left eye and had surgery to stop the hole from growing. This worked ok. However, the right eye now has floaters all the time.

    1. Hi:
      There is no research that is focused on the problem you describe, but application of the drops as directed reduces inflammation. Since inflammation is the cause of eye problems, it makes sense that they might facilitate the healing of conditions other than cataracts


  7. I’m 67 years old in overall good health except I have had cataract surgery in both eyes. The right eye was 15 years ago and the left eye was two years ago. Currently I am experiencing high pressures in my left eye, at times as high as 40, mostly in the 20’s. My Dr. (Tozer), has prescribed several different eye drops during the last two years but none seem to work as regards lower my eye pressure without causing some type of eye inflammation, or other eye issues. etc. These drops , as I’m sure you know, have many terrible side effects and I don’t want to take them, but nor do I want to go blind in my left eye
    My question for you is; Would your drops ( CAN-C ) help my left eye to the extent that I could forgo taking the prescribed Tozer eye drops?

    1. Hi: Of course we would certainly not have a clear answer for you. There is no research
      on the issue you describe for Can-C. First of course, it would be important for you
      to consult with your doctor. Second, I can report that the Can-C drops are designed
      to get inflammation under control. Eye problems are often due to excessive inflammation,
      so reducing inflammation may well facilitate healing. IT would be a natural process
      with you body doing all the work!


  8. To date, I have not found information on this subject on the source you gave. Can you provide a direct link to any publications on pubmed? Thank you. J

    1. Hi:

      Go to and search on the researcher/developer of Can-C whose name is:
      You will see 89 publications listed. Many of them used the Can-C formulation.
      Some of more in the area of basic research.


  9. Do this eye drop contain pork or any pork -byproduct. They told me that I need cataract surgery. I don’t believe they even care when they dilated my eyes and allowed me to drive home – just telling me to be safe. I would like to see if I can prevent this surgery if possible with the eye drops.

  10. I have just purchased the two vial box of Can-C. No where in reading about this product did I see anything about Lutein and zeaxanthin affecting the effectiveness of the drops but now that I have purchased the drops I see that info. Both my multivitamin and my eye health supplements contain these. I do not want to stop my multivitamin for an entire year!

    1. Right – you need all the other nutrients in the vitamins to be sure. I understand the researchers found that the eye drops seem to show quicker results when those are eliminated – but they also indicate taking them does no harm.

  11. My husband has a blood clot and is on Eliquis. Since he cannot take anti-inflammatory meds while on this medication can he take the eye drops?

    1. Hi:
      Researchers report that there is no contraindication from using the eye drops if a person is also taking medications.

    1. No. Refrigeration is not necessary. Just do not expose them to direct sunlight for hours on end. Placing the drops on a shelf in the home
      is sufficient.
