Virtually all cataract eye drops on the market have a 1% concentration of the active ingredient, N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine. The exception are the various drops made by Out of the Box Remedies (OBR), who offer concentrations of 2% and 4%, along with 10% on special order.
Comparing OBR to the Competition
Price is a primary concern for most users, and I’ve compared typical cataract drops on the market with those offered by OBR.
A very popular brand of eye drops is made by CAN-C, who offers two, 5 ml bottles for US$39 (free shipping in the U.S.) Outside the U.S., these drops have an additional US$20 shipping charge. If one wanted to purchase 30 ml of these drops, it would cost US$117/30ml in the U.S., or US$137/30ml internationally. Compare the weak, 1% CAN-C drops to those offered by OBR in the table below.
Cost for 30 ml of solution:
Keep in mind that the higher the concentration, the faster you can get rid of cataracts. From the table above, you can see that the OBR 4% drops offer four times more concentration that the competition, yet still cost less. Note that the OBR drops include free shipping internationally.
Which Concentration is Best for Me?
The CAN-C drops claim that cataracts can be eliminated within one year. The weakest OBR drops halve that time to six months, having twice the drop concentation. Virtually all customers can handle the slightly extra irritant factor presented by stronger drops, and these 2% concentration drops are suggested for someone trying them for the first time.
The Extra Strength Cataract Terminator drops (4% concentration) can expedite the process of eliminating cataracts as long as eye irritation is tolerated (which not all people can tolerate).
The Super Strength Cataract Terminator (10% concentration) is designed for rare, difficult cases where weaker drops have failed.
