    This product was developed in Russia and is called called Nu-Eyes, also
    Can-C.

    Does anyone know if this product advertised as a cure for cataracts is
    safe to try?

    It's sold in Britain and on the web in the USA but is not FDA approved.


    Here are the ingredients.

    sodium (lubricant) 0.3%. Inactive ingredients: Sterile Water

    The other question you should be asking is "Does it work?" If you read the
    scant published evidence available, you will find that it has been tested on
    very few people and that the research has all been done by people with a
    financial interest in the drops.
