Can Vuity Eyedrops Replace My Reading Glasses?

Jul 19, 2022 | Blog Article

If you are in your forties and beyond, you’re all too familiar with the challenge of blurry vision and the hassle of keeping up with your reading glasses. You have trouble seeing things up close, need to hold books or your phone at arm’s length if you don’t have your reading glasses on, get headaches, and have tired, sore eyes.

Presbyopia happens to us all as we age. The lenses in our eyes get less flexible, making it harder for light to properly get to the retina, the light-sensitive layer in the back of the eye, and this causes the blurry vision and other irritating issues.

Up until recently, treatment for presbyopia has included reading glasses, eyeglasses with special lenses, contact lenses, and surgery; however, now there is a new way to treat presbyopia. Imagine how nice it would be to go out to dinner with friends and not put on a pair of reading glasses to see the menu! Introducing the newest treatment for presbyopia – Vuity prescription eyedrops.

What is Vuity?

Vuity is a daily eyedrop solution that can be prescribed to treat presbyopia symptoms in adults.

It is the first and only FDA-approved eyedrop to help with presbyopia. Vuity eye drops currently comes in a 1.25 percent solution. It works by reducing the size of your pupils and by contracting muscles in your eyes to help you see up close clearly.

Can Vuity Eyedrops Replace My Reading Glasses?

Vuity eyedrops are applied daily, one drop per eye. The drops start working in around 15 minutes and the effects last for around 6 hours or so.

If you are between the ages of 40 – 59 or so, you may find that Vuity eyedrops will enable you to ditch the reading glasses for those dinners out with friends or fun weekend plans. The doctors at Vision Salon Eye Care Associates in Chicago can consult with you during an eye exam on whether Vuity eyedrops can help you not rely on reading glasses so much for daily life, based on your eye health history and visual needs.
