Frequently Asked Questions
The eye’s lens contains crystallin proteins, regularly aligned to allow light to pass through to the retina. Mammals naturally produce lanosterol, a molecule that prevents these aligned crystallin proteins from deforming and aggregating into cloudy cataracts that reduce clarity of vision. Reduced production of lanosterol often leads to the development cataracts.
Laboratory research has shown that a supplement of lanosterol to the eye can slow, halt and reverse the progression of cataracts. But since lanosterol is an insoluble molecule, it could only be delivered to the aqueous environment of the eye via injection. Our patent-pending process makes lanosterol soluble, so it can be delivered to the lens via an easy-to-administer topical solution.
N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) is an antioxidant. It scavenges for free radicals that cause age-related tissue damage. Unfortunately, NAC alone can take as long as nine months to produce noticeable results. We believe NAC is best used as a complement to the faster acting lanosterol. LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM is the only commercially available eye drop that delivers both of these ingredients to the eye in a therapeutic dose.
