Are you in your forties or older and starting to notice increasing difficulty when reading? At Loden Vision Centers, we offer many options for vision correction, including the newest advancement in presbyopia correction, Vuity eye drops.
What Are Vuity Eye Drops?
Vuity is a prescription eye drop that can help improve near vision in people who are presbyopic. Presbyopia is a refractive error caused by a loss of elasticity in the eye’s natural lens.
Most people begin noticing these vision changes in their early forties, worsening as time goes on. The Vuity eye drop is the first and only FDA-approved drop for the treatment of presbyopia.
After instilling the Vuity drops in your eyes, you will notice an improvement in your vision at near while still maintaining your distance vision. These eye drops work by reducing your pupil size to provide clearer near vision.
Most eye doctors prescribe Vuity to be used once daily in each eye. If you are using any other prescription or over-the-counter drops, you will need to wait at least five minutes in between drops.
Contact lens wearers can also use Vuity eye drops. If you wear contact lenses, you will need to take your contacts out before instilling the Vuity eye drops.
