Vision Clarity Eye Drops are a topical N-acetyl-L-carnosine supplement for the eyes. N-acetyl-L-carnosine is a unique form of the dipeptide carnosine, which allows for its delivery to tissues within the eye not accessible to free carnosine topical supplements. Research supports the ability of topical carnosine and N-acetyl-L-carnosine supplements to support eye structure and function. Pharmaceutical Grade Vision Clarity Eye Drops are tested for sterility (Click to View Certificate of Analysis).
Serving Size: 1 or 2 drops
Servings Per Container:
Approximately 200 drops per box (2 vials / 5 ml each)
Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients
Sterile water (ophthalmic grade isotonic solution, pH 6.3 to 6.4)
Buffered with boric acid, citric acid, and potassium bicarbonate, and, as a preservative, purified benzyl alcohol.
For the proper installation of drops: Lean head back and look up. Instill one drop, then slowly and gently close the eye, being careful not to squeeze the eye drop out of the eye. Do not blink or reopen for 60 seconds. Repeat this procedure if a second drop is used. Closing the eye allows each drop to be absorbed into the eye tissue. You may also lie down or use a tilt-back chair.
Warnings: To avoid contamination, do not touch tip of container to any surface. Replace the cap immediately after using. Open only one container of solution at a time. Do not allow other people to use your container. Once open, discard container and any contents after 30 days. Do not heat beyond room temperature; keep the extra tubes in the box away from light, especially sunlight. Do not use if seal is broken or if solution changes color or becomes cloudy. Not recommended for children under the age of 12 years. If the eye tissue becomes more inflamed, red, irritated or uncomfortable after using this product, immediately discontinue the use of product and consult an eye physician if necessary. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

You or a loved one may be faced with an eye condition such as cataracts, glaucoma, eye strain, or another eye ailment. You might have discovered that carnosine eye drops may show promise in dissolving, reversing, and preventing cataracts. Then undoubtedly you’ve also noticed the high prices of other carnosine and cataract eye drops. Within the handful of websites selling n-acetyl-carnosine eye drops, clever tactics are used to persuade you to believe that only their high priced NAC drops will work. What is noticeable on these other websites are scare phrases and words that warn you to only purchase drops only from them, or only with a specific approval on the box, etc. I am disheartened that a suffering group of people are taken advantage of. You deserve better.

MacuGuard Ocular Support with Astaxanthin by Life Extension provides three carotenoids in therapeutic doses to help protect your precious eyesight, plus astaxanthin to help fight eye fatigue. C3G promotes the healthy function of the delicate retina to help with night vision. Ensure your eyes longevity and visual acuity with Life Extension’s special SuperZeaxanthin formula!
The eye is a highly complex organ that detects light and converts it to electrochemical impulses in neurons. It must safely harvest, control, focus, and react to light in order to produce vision. Light enters the anterior (front) portion of the eye through the clear cornea and fluid-like aqueous humor, and is then focused by the clear lens before entering the gel-like vitreous humor. It must pass through a nerve layer of ganglions connected to photoreceptors (both rods and cones) where light signals are converted to electrical signals that are transported to the brain. Behind the photoreceptors is the retinal pigmented epithelium, which nourishes the retinal visual cells and removes waste from the constantly active photoreceptor cells. The retinal pigmented epithelium rests on a thin, connective tissue-like support structure called Bruch's membrane (vitreous lamina), which also serves to create a blood-brain barrier for transport of nutrients, waste products, and critical oxygen. The macular region of the human retina is yellow in color due to the presence of the macular pigment, composed of two dietary xanthophylls, lutein and zeaxanthin, and another xanthophyll, meso-zeaxanthin. The latter is formed from lutein in the retina.
By absorbing blue light, carotenoids protect delicate photoreceptor cells in the retina's macula from light damage. The density of your macular pigment (composed of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) is essential to proper vision.8-10 These carotenoids act as antioxidants and protect the macula from damage by photo-initiated oxidative stress.10-12 Unfortunately, this density declines naturally over time. Some aging people also lose their ability to convert lutein into meso-zeaxanthin inside their macula.
Eating lots of lutein- and zeaxanthin-containing vegetables can help maintain the structural integrity of the macula. However, since meso-zeaxanthin is not part of the typical diet, it cannot be replaced except in supplement form.
This MacuGuard Ocular Support formula provides therapeutic doses of all three carotenoids to help protect your precious eyesight, plus an additional carotenoid, astaxanthin, to help fight eye fatigue.
Eye health can benefit from using the antioxidant Astaxanthin. It slows the progression of diseases such as cataracts plus reduces eye strain and other more general maladies. A published study show the benefits of daily astaxanthin supplementation. The article in National Eye Care, Inc. reported greater than 50% of the study's participants experienced fewer symptoms of eye fatigue. The participants also showed improvement on visual function tests. In addition to the previous article, the February 2009 issue of "Chemical Research in Toxicology" reports taking astaxanthin supplemnts may reduce the risk of developing cataracts. Cataracts are the clouding of the lens in the eye which can lead to vision loss.2
Astaxanthin, found in the red algae called Haematococcus pluvialis, when taken with other carotenoids has been shown to protect against free radical-induced DNA damage, repair UVA-irradiated cells, and inhibit inflammatory cell infiltration.8,13-14 Astaxanthin also helps support vascular health within the eye and improves visual acuity.15 Astaxanthin may play a preventative role in eye fatigue. Human clinical trials by Japanese scientists demonstrated that astaxanthin is effective in reducing bleary-eye feeling, a tendency toward irritation, and preventing eye strain resulting from accommodative dysfunction.15-16
MacuGuard Ocular Support formula now includes C3G (Cyanidin-3-gluco-side), a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps to stimulate regeneration of rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a compound in the eyes that absorbs light in the retina. As rhodopsin dramatically declines over time, it leads to a progressive loss of night vision. By helping to maintain rhodopsin, C3G helps to support night vision.
With a special combination of ingredients that targets eye strain and protects visual acuity day and night, MacuGuard Ocular Support with Astaxanthin, Zeaxanthin, Lutein, C3G, and Meso-Zeaxanthin is an exciting breakthrough in eye care.
