Learn more about this exciting new treatment for presbyopia in this blog.

What is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related eye condition that causes difficulty focusing on near objects, such as books, phones, or labels. As we age, our eyes lose their ability to focus clearly on close objects due to the hardening of the lens inside the eye. This makes it harder for light to bend properly and reach the back of the eye (retina), resulting in blurred vision when looking at close objects. Presbyopia affects adults over the age of 40, and it can cause blurry vision when reading, using a computer, or doing other close-up tasks, requiring the use of reading glasses. Other symptoms include eyestrain and headaches when reading or performing other close-up activities.

What is the treatment for presbyopia?

The most common ways to treat presbyopia are glasses or contact lenses with corrective lenses specifically tailored for this condition. Depending on your specific needs, bifocals or progressive lenses may be recommended.

  • Reading glasses, bifocals, and progressive lenses are all types of eyeglasses that are specifically designed for people with presbyopia.
  • Contact lenses can also be prescribed to help improve near vision, and there are several different types available, including multifocal and monovision lenses.

VUITY™ prescription eye drops to improve age-related blurry near vision (presbyopia)

VUITY™ is a new prescription eye drop that has been shown to improve near vision in adults with presbyopia. VUITY™ works by reducing the size of the pupils, which can help to improve near vision and reduce the need for reading glasses or bifocals. VUITY™ is easy to use and is applied directly to the eye daily. Most patients notice an improvement in their near vision within a few days of starting treatment with VUITY™, and the effects can last for up to 24 hours.

  • One of the major advantages of VUITY™ is that it can help to improve near vision without the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
  • In addition to this major advantage, VUITY™ offers several other benefits over other treatment options for presbyopia. VUITY™ is easy to use and apply, is a non-surgical treatment option, and it has been shown to be safe and well-tolerated in clinical studies.

If you are experiencing age-related blurry near vision and are interested in trying VUITY™, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Louisiana Eye Care in Denham Springs, LA. Our eye doctors can evaluate your vision and determine if VUITY™ is the right treatment option for you.
