LumenPro is an eye drop formula that contains 0.25% lanosterol and 1% n-acetylcarnosine. LumenPro uses patent-pending technology to ensure that lanosterol is delivered to the lens of the eye. Lanosterol is capable of reversing crystallin protein deformation that causes cataracts. LumenPro is recommended for use in animals suffering from cataracts.
Lanosterol is the main ingredient supplemented to the eye by LumenPro. Lanosterol helps to align and restore the crystallin proteins in the eye lens. These proteins are what makes the lens clear (in healthy individuals) or cloudy (in individuals suffering from cataracts.) Everything humans and animals see passes through these crystallin proteins so they must be in a natural and stable form to maintain lens clarity.
Damage occurring through age, injury, disease, diet or genetics can cause these proteins to become misshapen or deformed. These deformed proteins are likely to collect with other deformed proteins and even cause the healthy proteins around them to begin deforming. These collections of deformed proteins are cataracts.
Lanosterol helps to reverse the collection (aggregation) of these deformed proteins and is believed to restore proteins that are in the early stages of deformation. As the clump (aggregate) of cataract-causing proteins is broken up, light begins to pass through the eyes normally and vision can be restored. Similarly, n-acetylcarnosine has shown effectiveness at reducing cataract severity and is an anti-oxidant, which helps prevent further damage to the lens.
LumenPro is the only commercially-available eye drop that delivers both of these ingredients to the eyes in effective quantities.
Both expedited and standard shipping options are available for most customers. All shipments originate in the USA, so domestic shipments may be received in as little as 2 business days or as many as 6 business days. International shipments may take over 20 days to be received due to customs policies of the receiving country.
LumenPro does not have formal dosage guidelines from a regulatory body. The recommended dosage according to our assessments is 1-3 drops (0.05-0.15 mL) per eye, given twice daily. More formal guidelines are as follows:
Dogs, Cats: 2 drops (0.3 ml – 0.5 ml) administered to each eye. 6-12 hours between applications.
Horses: 3 drops (0.45 ml – 0.75 ml) administered to each eye. 6-12 hours between applications.
Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Rodents: 1 drop (0.15 ml – 0.25 ml) administered to each eye. 6-12 hours between applications.
Diabetic Animals: LumenPro has shown little effectiveness in preventing diabetic cataracts. Due to the rapid nature and onset of cataracts due to diabetes, we recommends considering the cost of lanosterol supplementation relative to surgery before purchasing LumenPro.
