Frequently Asked Questions

LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM is a non-prescription eye drop formula recommended for use in pets with cataracts. It contains 0.375% lanosterol and 1% n-acetylcarnosine. LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM is available only through veterinarians.

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.

NO. LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM eye drops are a vision health supplement, not a drug, so a prescription is not required. However, LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM is available only through veterinarians.
The recommended dosage of LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM is to apply one drop to each affected eye twice daily. For a pet with two affected eyes, one bottle of LumenPro Veterinary StrengthTM provides up to 17 weeks of treatment.
The duration of treatment will depend on the age, severity and cause of the cataract. New and developing cataracts respond more quickly, with improvement usually observed after administering LumenPro for 90 days. Older, more opaque cataracts will take longer to respond to treatment. We recommend follow-up visits with your veterinarian to assess your pet’s progress, and determine whether to continue treatment. After the initial treatment, your veterinarian may recommend a lower “maintenance dosage” to prevent the cataract from recurring.
