Yes, if it is Vuity eye drops.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently has approved new eye drops to help fight presbyopia, also known as “senile vision”. These are age-related problems with focusing on objects at close range that occur in most people over the age of 40. According to the American edition of CBS News, a drug called Vuity now is positioned as the first FDA-approved drops for presbyopia.
These eye drops take effect as early as 15 minutes after application, narrowing the patient’s pupil and allowing vision to focus on objects in close proximity. The manufacturers claim that the effect of one drop will last 6-10 hours.
The drug is recommended for use in people 40-55 years of age. During a 3-month clinical trial involving 750 volunteers, side effects of the drops were revealed: headache and red eyes.
Nevertheless, the response from the test group was positive. CBS News quotes 54-year-old test participant Toni Wright as saying:
“It’s really life-changing thing. I used to have a hard time accepting that I was getting older and needed to wear glasses almost all the time. Now I rely on them much less, especially when I use the computer, which I couldn’t do without my glasses”.
It is noted that the manufacturer of Vuity will conduct additional trials to determine the effectiveness of the drug with long-term use. Of course, these drops are not positioned as a cure, but as a temporary relief of presbyopia symptoms. It is suitable for cases of moderate severity and is not recommended for use when driving at night.
These drops are already on sale in the United States. A one-month pack is priced at $80. You can buy them on the manufacturer’s official website: www.vuity.com.
