HelloCustomer

 

Though there a few studies which say that carnosine is effective in preventing cataract but there aro no long term and multi-centric studies which say that it is effective and safe if used over a long period of time. The only effective treatment for cataract is surgery at present. This view is shared by almost 100% ophthalmologists, I believe. I would advise you to stay away from it. Thanks and best wishes.
