JOEY JUMPS FOR JOY!
There’s one extremely happy kangaroo in the Broome Wildlife Sanctuary down under. The kangaroo was almost blind due to cataracts but, thanks to Ethos Bright Eyes Drops for Pets, from Ethos Schweiz LLC in Geneva, the kangaroo can now see again.
Here’s the letter of thanks from Jan Martin, who found the drops while searching on the internet and contacted the company who very kindly sent a course of treatment to help the strickened animal.
I have attached 2 photos of before and after using the drops. I have at least 3 animals developing cataracts at the moment and hoped I could take you up on your offer – will need at least 50 bottles. I have also been slowly convincing people that the drops are effective.

Ethos Bright Eyes Drops were originally developed for people but work equally as well with pets and other animals as clearly demonstrated by the photographs above. Instead of invasive surgery, a simple course of eye drops, containing the special ingredient N-Acetyl-Carnosine, are applied to each eye being treated, and these then go to work and dissolve the cataracts naturally.
Cataracts is a cross-linking of proteins in the lens of the eye and the Bright Eyes Drops reverse this cross-linking and restore the lens of the eye back to full clarity.
The average course of treatment, when treating two eyes, is six boxes applied over a period of six weeks. More severe and mature cataracts will require a longer course of treatment and mild to moderate cataracts can be cleared in less time.
Bright Eyes NAC Drops drops also help other eye conditions including; Glaucoma, Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Dry Eye Syndrome and Floaters.
You and your company are a class act, and it is really refreshing to deal with such an organization.
From the beginning, we had lots of questions regarding your drops, how to use them most effectively, and whether they would really improve the eyesight of our best friend, Rambo. At 17 years old, you can imagine how much we love him. He has lost his teeth (we feed him soft food by hand), he is deaf, and he has completely lost his sight due to cataracts. Up until a year ago, he could see reasonably well, but 6 months ago we realized that he had completely lost his sight, because he continues to walk into walls.
We continue to worry about his quality of life, and we have talked about when, if ever, is the right time to let him go, and put him to sleep. But we believe that he still loves life, as he loves to still play with us, still is active, and has a great personality. We’re sure that he is still happy, and we take great care of him. At the point when he becomes lethargic, clearly in pain, etc, we will have to make that difficult decision.
When we read about your eye drops, we were so excited. To be honest, we were a bit skeptical. But after reading your entire website several times, and sending you numerous e-mails with many, many questions with responses from you that were prompt, detailed, and open, we knew we had to give it a try. Cost was not an issue, as we would gladly have even payed for surgery, if he wasn’t so old, and under great risk if he were to be put under anaesthesia.
Unfortunatly, in Rambo’s case, the drops didn’t work. But I really think that it is because of his age, and there has just been too much damage at this point. I would recommend your product to anyone else who might have a pet that is developing, or had recently been diagnosed with cataracts. I wish we would have learned of your product several years ago, as I’m confident that they might have been in time to correct Rambo’s problem.
I sent you an e-mail only 24 hours ago with the disappointing news that the drops had not been effective for Rambo, and your company has already credited the entire purchase price. No questions asked, no demand for invoices or empty bottles, and no hassle… I am really impressed.
Thanks again for the quality of your organization,
“Zoe the French Poodle Regains Her Sight!”
A friend of mine, Dr Hodgkinson, ordered some Bright Eyes drops for his dog Zoe who had cataracts back in October. Zoe is nearly 15 and he didn’t want to put her through the trauma of an op at her stage in life. Six weeks later Dr Hodgkinson was back on the phone saying that Zoe had barked at a horse outside the window for the first time in ages.
When I spoke to him after another six weeks he told me she is able to see other dogs now, he can tell as she now barks and has interaction with other dogs whereas beforehand she would not seem to notice them. (Dr Hodgkinson asked me to mention that his qualifications are electrical engineering and not medical.)
I’ve attached a picture he sent me of her so you can see what she looks like !

“IT’S A MIRACLE My Beautiful dog ‘Faith’ can see again!”
My Beautiful dog ‘Faith’, a miniature Schnauzer, became blind with Cataract 9 months ago and as she is also deaf her sight was especially precious to her.
After using your Bright Eyes drops for just two weeks the improvement is a MIRACLE.
She can not only make out shapes, she is also more alert and can make it to her food before the younger Schnauzer can muscle in. This is after just TWO!! weeks.
We look forward to her continued improvement and we can’t thank you enough.
I am telling dozens of people about your product and wish you every success.

“Eye Drops Help Man’s Best Friend ‘Angel’ to See Again!”
I thought you might be interested to know Bright Eyes also helps man’s best friend. Our Chihuahua had the first signs of cataracts with her eyes becoming opaque. After using Bright Eyes twice a day for four months her eyes became completely black again. I continued for a further two months to make sure they stayed clear. I am now using Bright Eyes as my optician informs me I have cataracts forming. I hope it works for me as well as it did for our dog.

“Winning the ‘Battle of Entropion’ Against a 70Kg TANK!”
Dear Ethos: Our dog “Tank”, a 70 Kg, Boerboel, who at 5 months manifested a condition called Entropion (his eyelids were turning in and scraping his corneas), and was very miserable. This is usually fixed by surgery, but you have to wait until the head is full grown. We had to wait 5 months. During that time, we tried other lubricant eye drops, but none worked as good as Bright Eyes. Tank would come up and blink a few times for his eye drops, when his eyes hurt. He has since had the surgery, but he still asks for his eye drops occasionally. We have had other older dogs that we have used the Bright Eyes on to keep them from getting cataracts. Prevention is always better than cure in my book!
Thanks for such a great product, and, of course, we always use them ourselves too.

“Charlie Dog can see to walk without being on his lead again!”
Charlie dog has given his approval to use his photo which I will attach to this Email. I have a number of shots of him but this one shows off his features quite well, including his eyes which are both being treated with Bright Eyes.
Charlie is now 16 years old as far as we can tell as he was a rescue dog who was only going to stay with us for 2 days until Jo (Our daughter) could find him a home as he was due to be put down that weekend! As you can see 14 years later he is still alive and enjoying life and still with us. Over the last 2 years he has developed cataracts, in one eye initially, and last year the second eye has gone the same way. As Jo had spoken with you re the eye drops we have since over the last six weeks been administering Bright Eyes to both eyes and to date there has been a noticeable improvement in his sight and his confidence and personality have had a big boost.
We have over the last few months had to restrict his walks only on a lead as he would get completely disorientated – but this last week we have allowed him to walk without a lead albeit with a watchful eye from ourselves. This would not have been possible a month or two ago. We believe the improvement is slow but nevertheless has improved enough already to give him a better quality of life in his Autumnal years.
Please feel free Pete, to use any information you need out of this brief text and I will try to keep you updated to his progresses as we go along. Good news about the other trials and I will try and see the Richard and Judy Show when it is screened Thanks again Pete and kindest regards and success for the future to all the team!

“‘Bobbys’ Conjunctivitis cleared up within a week!”
My 10-year-old cocker spaniel, Bobby, suffers from recurring conjunctivitis which causes the whites of his eyes to become quite red and inflamed. Bobby also has a blocked tear duct which doesn’t help matters. Conjunctivitis in dogs and cats is not usually caused by bacteria (as is the case with humans) but by some form of irritation – often dust or dirt – which leads to a reddening of the white eye tissue and swelling of the inner eyelids. I have been using Bright Eyes drops myself for a number of months to relieve eye tiredness from hours in front of the computer, and I decided to try them on Bobby’s eyes. The results were quite amazing! The redness and swelling cleared up within a week, the itchiness has obviously stopped and his eyes are now really bright and clear. The fact that Bright Eyes also helps prevent cataracts can only be described as an added bonus as many dogs develop cataracts. Thank you for a marvellous product which I can thoroughly recommend to all dog owners. I am happy in the knowledge that I’m doing all I can to enable Bobby to enjoy healthy eyesight for the rest of his life.

“Your product really is fantastic and helped Minty to see again!”
Thank you very much for sending the Ethos eye drops. I was using them on my cat who unfortunately passed on recently. Minty had gone blind from cataracts and these eye drops where a real god send as they allowed Minty to enjoy her last days out in the sunshine rather than stuck on a bed frightened because she couldn’t see.
Your product really is fantastic and helped Minty who was over 18 years to see again. I’ll recommend your product to anybody. I don’t mind you using this letter as a testimonial and I have included some photos of Minty for you to use if you wish.

“Angelina the 6 month old Siberian Husky’s cataracts cured!”
I wanted to tell you this is an awesome product!!!! It has cured Angelina, my 6 month old Siberian husky’s juvenile cataracts! Thank God!!!
Angelina had almost lost her sight completely at 6 months old. Angelina was walking into furniture and would fall off the curb when we would walk her.
If I would have had surgery on her, it would have altered her depth of perception. She did not require surgery and is completely healed.
Now I am trying this product on my older 4 year old Siberian husky called ReeKu who is slowly developing cataracts and wanted to fix it before it got bad.
Thanks for everything and when I have the next vet appointment I will be sure to tell them of your product!
Thanks so much for your miraculous product! Sincerely,
Mary Lynn Marsico RN BSN – VA Hospital in Pittsburgh PA
