FDA Approves Eye Drops for Presbyopia
Vuity has become the first FDA-approved eyedrop to treat presbyopia which tends to affect people ages 40 and older. The medication was approved by the FDA in October 2021 and is said that you will notice the effects in 15 minutes and providing sharper vision for 6 to 10 hours.
The prescription drug uses the eye’s natural ability to reduce its pupil size. For those who use the drops, it may be hard to adjust their focus between objects at first.
However clinical studies involving the Allergan product showed that the eye drop improved near and intermediate vision without affecting distance vision.
The drops are intended for mild to intermediate cases of presbyopia and shouldn’t be used when driving at night or doing activities in low-light conditions.
