Diabetic eye disorders have been of common occurrence resulting from a progressive uncontrolled disease leading to cataracts and retinopathy. A review of past literature from 2006 to date has demonstrated a common message i.e. utilizations of vitamins for the resolutions of retinal disorders. The researchers in 2006 had shown the effects of retinol as an agent in the treatment of age-related maculopathy. Subsequent studies were focused on Vitamin A supplementation in children for Retinal dysfunction. Our current research from 2015 had one primary objective of creating a topical preparation as an alternative to the oral treatment to escape from systemic side effects. The OPTICORR our innovative formulation was studied in the pilot project and had shown a dramatic improvement restoring to normal vision. The patients were instructed to apply OPTICORR on the eyelids externally for a duration of 12 weeks. A large scale study has been conducted with a target population of 30 patients. The project will be continued for an in determined period due to the encouraging benefits for a duration to normal restoration. In addition, the medication has shown resolution of challenging dermatological diseases. The study was free of any adverse symptoms except for presence of l erythema at the region of the application on the skin would likely indicate intolerance to vitamin ingredients therefore a discontinuation would be warranted.
