FDA approves eye drops that can replace reading glasses for millions
A new FDA-approved eye drop hitting can change the lives of millions of Americans having age-related blurred near vision, a condition affecting mostly people 40 and older.
Vuity, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October, would potentially replace reading glasses for some of the approximately 128 million Americans who have trouble seeing close-up. The new medicine takes effect in about 15 minutes, with one drop on each eye providing sharper vision for a period of 6 to 10 hours.
Vuity is the first FDA-approved eye drop to treat age-related blurry near vision, also known as presbyopia. The prescription drug utilizes the eye’s natural ability to reduce its pupil size, explains Dr. George Waring, the principal investigator for the trial. “Reducing the pupil size expands the depth of field or the depth of focus, and that allows you to focus at different ranges naturally.”
Dr. Yael Vidal of Vidal Medical Concierge has updated her clients, who seek a Concierge Physician in Palm Beach Gardens, with regard to this exciting development. The potential of this particular type of eye drops to help people in need sounds promising.
Furthermore, Vidal Concierge in Juno Beach regularly advises to its patients, particularly those who search for a Concierge Doctor in Jupiter or in Juno beach, with regard to their medical conditions. This important update can be relevant to many such patients and people.
Additionally, explained Doctor Yael Vidal, a concierge doctor who is a Board Certified Physician and typically helps patients and local residents who need a Concierge Internist in Palm Beach area, this interesting development may be relevant to the particular age group mentioned above.
