OcluVet Eye Drops, 15mL
Nutritional / Lubricant Eye drops
The OcluVet formula is an advanced nutriceutical formulation developed to address the contributing factors of lens opacities, like cataracts. It is comprised of numerous ingredients rather than taking a single ingredient approach to address the multiple deficiencies of the lens.
Glycation of lens proteins is a primary factor in cataract formation. Glycation results in the formation of a schiff base (SB) and Amadori rearrangement via the Maillard reaction leading to early glycation products. As the process continues, dehydration and rearrangement leads to cross-links between adjacent proteins, resulting in protein aggregates, advanced glycation end products (AGE’s) and increased oxidative stress (glycoxidation). In simple terms, with age, disease, or trauma the crystallin proteins in the eye lens are damaged and denatured allowing them to “clump” to together. This clumping of damaged proteins is what is recognized as a cataract.
The OcluVet “Ocular Restoration System”™
Crystallin lens proteins are long-lived proteins expressed early in life with virtually no turnover or protein synthesis. The eye protects its DNA from damage with numerous antioxidant systems. The OcluVet formula was designed to target the reactions that lead to the formation of damaged proteins and provide the nutrients needed to repair the altered amino residues and oxidation to allow the proteins to return to their healthy, noncross-linked state. Unlike oral or commercially available eye drop supplements that demonstrate little or no benefit, OcluVet utilizes a systems approach in targeting compromised and damaged components of the eye. This powerful antioxidant/ nutrient system provides immediate neutralization of existing free radicals and is a glycation and protein cross-linking inhibitor.
