I am 73-years-old, and about 6 months ago I noticed my vision declining. I also occasionally experienced a stabbing pain behind my left eye (which is my worse eye). I went to the eye doctor and he recommended surgery. The doctor told me there was nothing else I could do to improve my eye sight other than surgery. I drive to work in the morning when it is still dark and I noticed that if I closed my right (better) eye, I couldn't see enough to drive with my left (worse) eye â€“ my vision was very hazy and oncoming lights were blinding. During the day I couldn't see enough to read through my left eye, if I closed my right eye. Three months ago I began using OcuPhase. I use 1 drop in the morning, 1 drop in the evening, and some days if I am home, I add 1 or 2 more drops during the day. As soon as I started using OcuPhase, the stabbing pain behind my left eye that I occasionally experienced, ceased. I noticed my overall sight improving. Three months later, the issue with my right eye is gone, and I can see completely with my right eye, read well and drive â€“ my right eye is great. I notice while driving in the dark mornings that oncoming lights aren't as glaring, and during the day I can see to drive, even if I close my right eye. I also notice my peripheral vision returning. As for reading, my vision in my left eye is fuzzy, but I can read through it, especially larger print. I think the left eye must be improving because I can see through it more than I could 3 months ago. I am thrilled that the problem with my right eye is gone. My overall vision is much improved, I notice especially when I'm working at the computer. I plan to continue using OcuPhase regularly. I will go to the eye doctor in three months and will let you know what he says about my progress. Donna B
I just had to write to thank you for your carnosine eye drops. My mother, Chanahhei, is 79 years old and has suffered from vision problems many years. Her doctors wanted her to go into hospital for surgery but I don't trust them and hospitals much after our previous experiences with them so she hadn't gone. Then a couple of months ago a good friend of mine told me about your eye drops and that they could help her without the need for surgery. This sounded too good to be true but I decided to get them for her as I feel anything is preferable to surgery and she is my mum and I'll do anything for her. I started putting the drops into her eyes for her every day, once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and then again in the evening. Already, after just seven weeks of using them the white film has cleared from her eyes and there is now just a very small patch left in the corners. She can now see my finger again which she couldn't before and everyday like clockwork she reminds me that it's time for her drops. Thank you so much for such a wonderful product and I am now telling everyone about them and how great they are. Mary & Chanahhei - Middlesex, UK
My mother and I have used the drops for some 4 to 5 months with excellent results. My mothers vision has cleared completely. I use the computer for many hours a day and suffered from tired and sore eyes. I put 1 drop in each eye first thing in the morning and the result is that I can now work without any discomfort. If I've had a particularly grueling day with a lot of driving in the dark I use another drop -- the results are immediate, they are impressive and they make my life much more comfortable. If you suffer from sore or tired eyes, have a vision issue or are of an age when vision issues are likely to start (+50) then I recommend carnosine eye drops. The drops are economical to use and they DO WORK. Try them!! Roger Cooke - Wakefield, UK
I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your product OcuPhase. I read an article in one of my health publications about OcuPhase helping to prevent eye issues from forming. After having surgery on one of my eyes, I didn't want the other one to lead to more surgery. My eye doctor said I had the very beginning of a problem on my other eye. I ordered your OcuPhase and have used both vials. After visiting my eye doctor a year later, I am happy to say there was no growth of the problem. To say I am thrilled doesn't begin to express how relieved I am. My sister now wants to try OcuPhase as she has eye issues also. Sure wish I would of known of this awesome product before I had the first surgery. Thank you for a fantastic product.
This is the first product I tried that really works. I have mild pressure in my eyes, and doctor gave me cumadin for it, but I didn't see any improvement. I have been taking OcuPhase for about 2 months. When I first started using OcuPhase, I noticed I didn't need to use my reading glasses, because I could see better! Things are sharper -- I can see the time on the TV which I couldn't see before without my glasses. I used to have a little blurriness due to a small issue but that has gone away. I really can see better without my reading glasses. I've told my brother and he has had good results too! My sister is the next to try it. I'm really happy with this product! John O.
I started using these drops a number of months ago, and have found them to help with some eye issues I had been experiencing. In fact, at my last eye exam, when I spoke with the doc, he looked and there was no longer any signs in either eye of the issue he had mentioned the year before. And my mother-in-law has experienced some very positive things with these drops with her eyes - they work as well as some other drops that were causing her problems. Great product! One that I plan to continue to use indefinitely. You may notice some stinging with this product at first, but over time I found this to diminish to where it is not much of a problem.
I want to tell anyone who would like to see more clearly when they read, that OcuPhase is the key to better sight. I found your product through Health Sciences Institute. I ordered it about 2 months ago. Before using OcuPhase, I couldn't read my books and magazines clearly. It took a couple months of putting the drops in my eyes twice a day (8am and 5pm). Within the last month my sight got better, and it seems to get better as time passes. It's nice to be able to read clearly again. My eye sight is getting better day by day. I plan on using OcuPhase from now on. Thanks for a great product! - John Flores
Over the years, the issues in both of my eyes kept getting worse, and I was surely going to need surgery in the foreseeable future. When I discovered the OcuPhase product, I immediately began to use it twice a day in both eyes. Very quickly, the issues improved noticeably in both eyes. Then they stabilized, and they have not been getting worse over the past 3 years. It appears I might now avoid surgery, hopefully forever. I highly recommend this product as a means to prevent eye problems from getting worse and maybe even improve them somewhat.
I just wanted you to know that the improvement in my vision is amazing. I had gotten to the point where I could no longer drive due to haziness from my vision, and now I feel very secure and am able to see almost as well as before. I also have not noticed any kind of side effects. I just wanted to tell you how happy I am and that I am definitely recommending carnosine eye drops to all my friends with similar problems! If you need me for any referrals or statistics I would be happy to help! Please keep on with the great work! A.B.
I only recently received this product, but so far I am impressed with the clarity I have gained. I'm not sure if it is just my desire to have it that way, but I believe it is doing what it says it is supposed to. Further use of the product, I think, is required. And perhaps a later review would be much more favorable than three stars which is all I feel I can give at this point. If the product continues to do as it has so far, I believe a five star rating is there. Thank you so much for this product.
I want to tell you about my experiences with the eye-drops. At first I didn't think there were any real differences, but I persisted in using the drops twice a day in the affected eye. Now after about 3-months I believe that there are significant changes to my vision. It's been a fairly gradual thing, which may explain why I didn't appreciate any changes early on, but now it's obvious to me that my eyesight has improved. The changes are slower than I anticipated, but I for one am sold on the drops! C.S.
Dear Tango, I cannot express enough my gratitude to you and you company for OcuPhase. From what I had read, I didn't expect to realize any results for about three months. I was overjoyed to discover my eyes had regained their natural color in only a couple of days. I told my family that I would be a guinea pig, and if the eyedrops worked I'd let them know so that they could order also. Needless to say, I've told them that I'm more than satisfied. Thank You, Mrs. Suzan V. Barker, (Indianapolis, Ind.)
My husband and I both started using the eye drops about two weeks ago and we have noticed that lights are not as glaring. I think over time it will do its job so we can see better. Sometimes the drops sting but Im sure its when I have dry eyes and I forget the moisture drops. Other than that, no side effects. So far its been only positive so we will continue to use them. One bottle lasted about two weeks. With both of us using the same bottle, we do one drop in each eye morning and night.
So glad I decided to try OcuPhase before I consented to having eye surgery. I've been using this product for less than two weeks and my eyes are clear. I don't have the dreaded film over my eyes. My left eye is more improved than the right but then my right eye had a more serious issue than the left. The good news is; I see perfectly fine now where I was struggling just two weeks ago. Thank God there are alternative products on the market. Thank God for Ocuphase! I'm 69 years old
I have been using OcuPhase for a while. The eye drops were recommended for help in dealing with night halos. The halos are diminishing. My room mate has been using them for only a few weeks and is noticing some improvement. It also helps her dry eyes. Each of us are reacting at a different rate. The ordering is easy and they arrive within a week. -- only Con I have is irritated eyes can burn for a short time after the drops are put in.
I've been diagnosed with the beginnings of problems in both eyes, with surgery booked for February 2016. I found out about OcuPhase and decided to try it. Much to my amazement in just a few short days of use, I am finding my vision to get a bit clearer. I have re-ordered more and if my vision keeps improving I will not be having the surgery. I will update again soon as to my progress. Thank You ... OcuPhase :)
I starting using OcuPhase for just a few days and am noticing my vision getting clearer. I've been diagnosed with the beginnings of some issues in both eyes, supposed to have surgery February 2016. I've re-ordered more of the OcuPhase and am intending to use it so the surgery will be cancelled. This is a great and wonderful product, I would recommend it to anyone, Thank You OcuPhase :)
I have ordered this product for the 2nd time. Since I was diagnosed as having the beginning of a problem in my right eye, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, I can't really comment on the effectiveness because I have not used it long enough and I have not had my eyes rechecked, but will be happy to comment when I do have them rechecked. Shipping was quick.
PRIOR TO STARTING MY DAILY ROUTINE, USING ONE DROP OF OCUPHASE IN EACH EYE DAILY, I HAD SEVERAL "FLOATERS" DRIVING ME TO DISTRACTION. SINCE USING THESE DROPS, ALL OF THEM HAVE DISAPPEARED. IT WAS REALLY FUN TO HAVE MY EYE DOCTOR COMMENT ON THE FACT THAT "THEY SEEM TO ALL BE GONE." HE WAS VERY SURPRISED!! ( AND I WAS TOTALLY DELIGHTED!!)
Recently purchased OcuPhase for my husband after friend had recommended it. My husband claims that in just a couple of weeks he does not see blurriness from car headlights at night and his eyes just have an overall better feel. We will definitely be ordering more as eyesight is one of the most important gifts that we have.
Initially i tried this product as a result of a HSI report. I had been diagnosed with medium eye issues. The process is slow but i have noticed a change for the better with night halos. It does burn a little at times if the eyes have been irritated. I am now on my 4th set of bottles.
They have worked quite well to help my dry eyes. It is too soon to tell if there will be any other effects. The small size with the two vertical ridges makes it easy to use. I just have to remember to not be too aggressive tightening the cap.
My wife's doctor told her that your eye drops wouldn't work. I'd like to hear your rebuttle on this. I know the arguments well. She is scheduled to have surgery on her eyes next year.
Thanks in advance, Richard and Chiyo Ott
I purchased this product for my mother. The drops do burn when put into the eyes. So far she hasn't noticed any discernible improvement in her vision, but it has only been 30-days, so we will keep trying to give it a fair shot.
My eyes have been changing over the last several years - mostly dryness and I have tried many brands of eyedrops. OcuPhase works best for me, providing immediate long-lasting relief. Thanks for a great product!
i have not received my order yet but have used the drops once before. i found it was difficult to get the opening just right for the drops to come out properly. i hope I'll have better luck next time.
Real simple to take, still have not taken it long enough to determine results. One downside, can't tell when it will sting or not. To me if feels like an eyelash in the eye, lasts 5 seconds or so.
I like the OcuPhase eyedrops as it helps give moisture to my eyes and my eyes are bright and clear. I lay on my bed to put the drops in; so it gives me an opportunity to relax for 5 minutes.
I've been using OcuPhase now for approximately 3 weeks and....my vision is improving. I am so happy as I feel I will no longer be having surgery come the new year. Thank You OcuPhase :)
I have been taking these eye drops for some time now and have been very excited about the testimonials I have read. Am looking forward to my next eye exam to see what happens.
I like using OcuPhase because it is a soothing, natural form of eye drops that helps with dry eyes. I have been using the drops for several years and am pleased with the results.
I have only been using these eye drops for two weeks, and the scratchiness and itching are so much improved. I will continue to use them and highly recommend them to my family.
After applying OcuPhase 2 times per day for 6 days, I actually could see more clearly! I was diagnosed with beginning problems in both eyes and sought out this great product.
We have been using this product for about 2 years now, it has reduced the issues in both of my eyes and I can see without my glasses just fine. Great Product.
Thus far I cannot make a judgment call about the product given I just began using the drops. The next several weeks will be a more reliable time to review.
I have an issue with my right eye. I been using OcuPhase Eye drops for sometime now. It has reduced the problem and I have clearer vision in the eye now.
I have been using Occuphase for sometime and it really seems to help my eyes. It is so comfortable and easy to use and makes my eyes feel better.
The issue with her right eye is considerably smaller and problem with the left eye completely gone. Her vison in the right eye is much better.
Do not know how.well ocu phase is working as of yet have only used for one week at one drop in each eye twice a day so it's to soon to tell
I have used the drops for about 3 weeks now and when driving at night glare from headlights seem to be getting less than before the drops.
Since using this on my 16-year-old smokey dog her eyes have cleared up bewtter and she is seeing well. They are also not dry anymore.
I have found in just a few days that my vision is much clearer. I'll continue to use OcuPhase well into the future.
The OcuPhase product has reduced the size of my eye issue and continues to gradually clear up the sight in my eye.
These drops make my eyes feel marvelous. Very soothing.
Only difficulty is holding head back for 60 seconds.
I used this with my 16 year old dog that is developing eye issues. Her eyes are clearer and she sees better
My mom use these drops for several years to keep her eyes healthy at 78. Great product that works.
This one really seems to help my mother with her dry eye and irritation overall!
Very please with this product. Clarity has improved in just 7 days.
Very happy with product will need to order more soon.Thanks Vito m
My dog's eyes are clearer and she is seeing better. Jim Darragh
I'M STILL USING THE DROPS. SO FAR THEY SEEM TO BE WORKING.
The OcuPhase Eye drops have done wonders for my eyes.
OcuPhase® - Soothing Eye Drops
OcuPhase® is a sterile eye-drop formulation offering two proven lubricants – hydroxypropylmethylcellulose and glycerin – that are approved by the FDA for ophthalmic use.
Suggested Use: For general preventive use, the recommended amount is 1–2 drops daily. Those with eye problems may want to use 2 drops twice daily or as needed.
OcuPhase also contains 1% N-acetylcarnosine, a naturally occurring antioxidant and antiglycating agent that helps protect the active ingredients from glycation. OcuPhase also contains ophthalmic lubricating agents to combat “dry eye” and other forms of eye irritation. Each box contains two vials containing five milliliters each.
Each package contains two resealable vials containing a total of about 200 drops, which allows for only a small amount of product to be exposed to oxygen at a time. Unopened vials can be stored in the refrigerator to extend shelf life.
- If you experience eye pain, changes in vision, continued redness or irritation of the eye, or if the condition worsens or persists for more then 72 hours, discontinue use and consult a doctor.
- To avoid contamination, do not touch tip of container to any surface.
- Replace cap after using.
- Do not use if seal is broken.
- If solution changes color or becomes cloudy, do not use.
Active Ingredients: Glycerin (lubricant) 1.0%, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (lubricant) 0.15%
Inactive Ingredients: Sterile water (ophthalmic grade isotonic solution, pH 6.3 to 6.4), N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) 1.0%, buffered with boric acid, citric acid, and potassium bicarbonate, and, as a preservative, purified benzyl alcohol.
Good nutrition is a key element of preventing numerous age-related issues, including the health of our eyes. As we age our eyes become more susceptible to a host of challenges that can lead to irritation, discomfort and changes to vision. Colors may be dulled or distorted, and there may be an annoying halo of light around bright objects, causing a glare effect.
Applying lubricating eye drops several times a day can help to alleviate discomfort. Additionally, a number of nutrients have been shown to benefit eye health and good vision. One of these, carnosine, is a dipeptide consisting of two amino acids (alanine and histidine) connected by a chemical bond. Based on research performed mainly by Russian scientists, it is believed that carnosine's antioxidant properties support healthy vision by inhibiting a chemical process called glycation.
Glycation leads to deleterious chemical complexes called AGEs (advanced glycation end products) that result from common but undesirable reactions between blood sugars, such as glucose, and proteins in many parts of our bodies, including the lenses of our eyes. The sugar-protein complexes become chemically cross-linked and degrade cellular functions. The aptly named AGEs are thought to be an important factor in the aging process.
Carnosine eye drops have been shown to aid in delaying vision senescence in humans by restoring the natural structure of proteins in the lens.
N-acetylcarnosine (NAC), like its parent compound, carnosine, occurs naturally throughout the human body. Both compounds are found primarily in the heart and skeletal muscles (the word carnosine is derived from the Latin word for flesh) and in the brain. Carnosine was discovered in 1900 in Russia, and it is in Russia that most of the recent research on the N-acetylcarnosine derivative has been carried out. Research with N-acetylcarnosine, as with carnosine, demonstrates that it is effective for improving transmissivity of light through the lens.
The structural difference between NAC and carnosine is that one hydrogen atom in carnosine replaces an acetyl group (CH3CO-), and this substitution occurs at a nitrogen atom. An important chemical difference between carnosine and N-acetylcarnosine is that carnosine is relatively insoluble in lipids (fats and fatty compounds), whereas N-acetylcarnosine is relatively soluble in lipids (as well as in water).
This means that N-acetylcarnosine may pass through the lipid membranes of the corneal and lens cells more easily than carnosine, and may thereby gain access more readily to the cells’ interior, which is primarily aqueous. There, the N-acetylcarnosine is gradually broken down to carnosine (and, perhaps, to histidine), which then exerts its beneficial effects.
Carnosine and N-acetylcarnosine eye drops appear to be a safe, effective means for supporting eye health, comfort and quality of vision in aging humans.
What is the recommended daily use of OcuPhase?
