As we age, so do our eyes. We have difficulty reading small prints or need brighter lighting at the desk. Age-related blurred vision is usually treated with eyeglasses or reading glasses.

Now, a game-changing new eye drop has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s the first time, the FDA has approved any eye drops for the treatment of age-related blurred vision

The eyedrops may limit the need for reading glasses if you are under 65

The life-changing ‘Vuity’ eye drops are available for purchase. These drop effects in just 15 minutes and enhance the vision for six to 10 hours. The clinical trial participants say that the eyedrops could change the lives of people with age-related blurred vision.

The drops work by using the eye’s inherent ability to reduce its pupil size

“Reducing the pupil size expands the depth of field or the depth of focus, and that allows you to focus at different ranges naturally,” George Waring, principal investigator of Vuity’s clinical trial, told CBS.

Millions of Americans are affected with age-related blurred near vision. Vuity works well for people aged below 65. It offers an easy alternative to reading glasses for millions.  Priced at $80 for 30 days’ supply, these drops are quite affordable.
