N-acetyl-l-carnosine dissolves cataracts?

I'm receiving some this week to begin treating a Labrador puppy, 70% blind, from cataracts.
Anybody hear whether this stuff works, or not?
The operation is about $2,000., the bottle of drops is $36., which includes postage. Do the math, and tell me I'm wrong for trying it.
I have a veterinarian, and a canine opthamologist both waiting to hear my results.
Dog doesn't know she's an experiment.
Here's to hoping it works...the stuff is all the rage in Europe, they can't manufacture it fast enough [quoted me a 2 month wait]. I found it in N.Y., and am reasonably sure the product is identical to the European version.

How is this chemical supposed to get past the cornea and into the lens?
Normal is just a stereotype.

Thanks. Babizhayev MA., is the guy that developed/ tested the stuff.
Imitation being the most sincere form of flattery, there is a new item in the dog supply catalog that I just got...
http://revivalanimal.com/category.asp?s ... re&c=10008
The $40. jobby is what I'm referring to. I wrote the manufacturer, there is no N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine in their drops. I then see no reason whatsoever that they should be worth $40. +shipping, when the real thing is $36.  :roll:

Any guesses as to what  these medical problems come from that are legendary in inbred populations? all peptide linkage and stuff ?

inbreeding depresion is said by some to have very few " observable" physiological effects other than fertility and longevity issues until many generations of inbreedings have taken place. yet we see that in isolated populations there seems to be an enormous effect within about 200 years or less.
maybe the mutants murder all the "normals"...

Small update.
The 1st time I bought the product, I purchased a small amount, 2 vials.
The effective dosage was said to be 3-4 drops, every day.
I gave 1 drop, each eye, once a day-if I remembered...
I saw enough results, that I bought 6 more vials.
I began to give it at the recommended dosage.
In 3 days, at the dosage of 3x a day, the dog could see.
The blind dog now can see everything, although I can still see the cataract [looked like a silver dime, but has gotten considerably smaller, and seems to be only in the back of the eye].
I was excited enough to call the opthamologist, to tell him of the results.
I will continue the drops, until the cataracts dissolve completely.
I will let you know what the opthamologist says, when I am sure I am not wasting any of our time...
Cheri.

The knock off product that I got worked just fine. http://www.bcn4life.com/vo1.htm

I paid $35, which included postage, then [a month later] got 3 boxes for the price of two, and increased application to the recommended amount of 3x a day. Within 3 days at that dosage she could see, and her eyes are resuming normal coloration.

The opthamologist was unsure of the cause, but said [last week] that the cataracts were resorbing and shrinking, and should continue to do so until normal. We talked at length about the phenomena, and he did say he was glad he did not do surgery on the pup.

I've read about NAC eye drops beneficial effect on cataracts, and have ordered some to try. But let me tell you what's been going on with me and my eyes over the past 30 days or so -

I needed an updated certificate from the eye doctor so I could renew my expiring driver's license (at age 81 years). The eye examination showed that I had 20/30 vision in my left eye, 20/40 vision in my right eye, which the doctor said was sufficient for the DMV standards, and she signed the certificate. In addition she told me I was developing cataracts in both eyes and scheduled a "more definitive" eye exam for later that month, about 4 weeks away, at which time they could prescribe new eyeglasses for me.
So I decided to avoid cataract surgery if possible and started right away applying two drops of Castor Oil in each eye at bedtime each evening. I had researched cataracts and found this as a possible treatment, reputed by some to dissolve cataracts.
Then I went in for the "more definitive" examination three weeks later. The results were amazing! The doctor told me I had 20/20 vision in both eyes and there was no evidence of cataract formations! She wanted to know if I had been doing something "different," and I told her I was dropping Castor Oil in my eyes at bedtime every night. She was incredulous and called in a senior ophthmologist to look at my eyes. They couldn't believe what they were now seeing. (They couldn't believe their eyes?) So, no eyeglasses were needed now. I see better without glasses, even when reading, given adequate lighting and type font.
For fine reading or in dim light, I am still using the old glasses which work well enough when I need them.

So... that old grandma's remedy for constipation is now my remedy for reversing cataracts!
I intend to continue dropping castor oil in my eyes each night, but also will experiment with the NAC eye drops to see if they will make a difference as reported. The castor oil is rather sticky and messy in use, so if the NAC seems to benefit me as well, I will use those drops, as they are less messy.
