New eye drops may replace eyeglasses
Many families have at least one older member who wears eyeglasses to read. This is very common because as people age, they often develop presbyopia–a condition that causes blurry vision when looking at nearby objects.
People with presbyopia now have the option of using glasses instead of being forced to. Last year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved VUITY eye drops to treat presbyopia, which offers people a bright close-range vision for up to six hours. This is welcome news for those who don’t like wearing glasses.
