Eye Drops to Improve Age-Related Vision Loss

Age-related close-up vision loss often starts happening after 40. This is called presbyopia and “it affects around 128 million people in the US and more than a billion people worldwide.” The US FDA recently approved an eye-drop medication called Vuity which may be an alternative treatment for presbyopia, allowing people to avoid needing glasses, contacts, or eye surgery. The eye drops work by “causing the pupil to get smaller” which “reduces the amount of light scatter” making it so that “the light entering the eye is better concentrated onto the retina, thus creating a wider range of distances where objects are in focus and allowing people to see both close and far objects clearly.” Vuity is approved and available for around $80 with a prescription.
