What Are Vision Correction Eye Drops?
Presbyopia is a form of farsightedness that is brought on by age and can prevent patients from being able to see clearly up close. Though this can occur in younger patients, most people will not develop presbyopia until they are at least 40 years old. This is a very common condition that is part of the natural aging process as the lens in the eye begins to harden or stiffen with age. While there are surgical and laser solutions for this, Dr. Ralph Chu and his experienced staff at Chu Vision Institute are proud to offer VUITY, which is the first FDA-approved eye drop designed to negate the effects of farsightedness. If you think your vision may be being impacted by presbyopia and would like to treat this condition without the need for a procedure, consider visiting us in Minneapolis, MN, today.
"This staff is absolutely amazing!!! They talk to you as a human and take the time to explain what they are going to do. They spend time answering questions and concerns. Dr. Chu and his team…I honestly couldn’t have asked for more. They genuinely care, and you can hear it in their voices. I was nervous, and as an adult male that can be….belittling…but they were amazing! They actually pumped up my confidence. I will never go anywhere else for my eyes. I plan on scheduling all my appointments with them. Give them a chance, they will not disappoint. I heard it in the waiting room, everyone was happy and appreciative. Thank you all for making my life better!"- B.J. / Google / Jun 10, 2022
"Dr. Chu did a wonderful job with my SMILE procedure, taking my -5.75 and -6 prescriptions to 20/20. My results are amazing, yes... but I think that being as nervous as I was, the thing that really made this experience phenomenal was the care that Dr. Chu, Dr. Heckman, and the whole team provided. I appreciate that they took the time to talk to me about all of my concerns before I scheduled my procedure - have really dialed in the actual day of your appointment so it's smooth and efficient and you always know what's going on and what to expect - and that they have continued to provide that level of care at every follow up appointment. I have always received such a warm welcome every time I have visited, and am grateful that they always find time to address any questions or concerns. PS - a special thank you to every technician I've been fortunate enough to meet at my appointments, you all provided such lovely, friendly conversation!"- N.M. / Google / Jun 28, 2022
"Lasik was not something that i ever thought would be an option as it never was for my astigmatism and far sighted vision issues. New technology made something i never thought possible a possibility. This was the easiest thing ever. From what i expected was that it was suppose to be a slow progression and will continue to improve over next 6 weeks. I am already mind blown by how it has gone and how well I see. No glasses and I see better than I ever did with glasses...lol. Best Doctor, team, and experience. I HIGHLY Recommend everyone using Chu Vision Institute for all ete care needs. You will not regret it. Thank you!"- J.D. / Google / Mar 31, 2022
"From the day I walked in for my consult to the day after surgery and my first post-op, Chu Vision provided nothing short of a stellar experience. After 30 years of my life spent wearing glasses and 27 years with contacts, my vision stabilized and I was referred to Chu Vision. LASIK has been something I've wanted for many years but will be the first to admit my gut was wrenching with anxiety the entire month leading to the procedure after weighing the pros and cons of eye surgery. Browsing the internet and learning about side effects: glares, halos, starbursts...didn't exactly help my anxiety. Don't get me wrong, without glasses or contacts, I could barely make out the big E in the eye doctor's office. If anyone broke into my house, if a contact fell out while swimming, if something happened to my contacts/glasses on vacation...I'd be screwed. I wanted to be free. My 1:1 prior to surgery with Dr. Chu definitely put me at ease. The entire staff at Chu Vision is extraordinary...something you wish for at any service-related business. They calmed my nerves, walked through every step, answered all my questions, advised me how to prepare and what to truly expect afterward. The day of surgery was quick and absolutely painless...no pain at all, and my entire time at the office was 45 minutes. The actual procedure was less than 10 minutes. Dr. Chu provided an amazing surgery and turned my -6.75 prescription WITH ASTIGMATISM to 0!!!! The day after surgery for my post-op, I could easily see 20/20, and I know they don't guarantee better than 20/20, but I was able to see 20/15 the day after surgery, with my own eyes...truly amazing!!!! TO THIS DAY I CATCH MYSELF IN AMAZEMENT BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO NOT HAVE THIS VISION WITH MY OWN EYES. I'm now 4.5 weeks out from when I had surgery and the post-op procedures and drops are cake. I have not had ANY glares, halos, starbursts, nothing. I can see clearly at night and during the day. "Whereas once I was blind, now I see." Thank you so much Dr. Chu, your team, and the experience you have built. I can't put into words how you have changed my life. Thank you so much."- C.K. / Google / Jan 20, 2022
"I had cataract surgery and before surgery had cloudy vision and a great deal of difficulty with night driving-halos, difficulty seeing lines on the roads especially on wet roads. I got the light adjusted lenses. It took a few weeks of adjustments but now I can see clearly to read and drive without glasses and the best part is I can drive at night and I don’t have the haloes around lights with oncoming traffic and I can see the road and lines even in the rain!! No glasses needed!!! I wear regular sunglasses in the sun but no prescriptions. Thanks Dr. Chu!!! Your staff was amazing-each person was polite and friendly and professional!"- L.F. / Google / Jun 04, 2022
Are Vision Correction Eye drops Right for Me?
VUITY is considered ideal for anyone who has been diagnosed with mild to moderate presbyopia. This often develops with time, meaning that most of our patients for this treatment are often 40 or older. VUITY is FDA-approved for the use of patients between the ages of 40 – 55. In some cases, patients may even develop consistent headaches from their inability to see effectively. If you notice yourself having to move things further and further away from your face in order to see clearly, you may have presbyopia and VUITY may be right for you. During your consultation with Dr. Chu, he'll be able to accurately diagnose your condition and identify whether or not vision correction eye drops are the proper form of treatment.
How Do Vision Correction Eye Drops Work?
Vision correction eye drops are administered in exactly the same way as normal eye drops. Patients will simply place one drop in each eye daily. Using proprietary technology, known as pHast, VUITY is able to rapidly adjust to the exact pH of the tear film within the eye. The solution is pilocarpine-based, allowing it to utilize the eye's natural ability to reduce pupil size and enhance close-up vision without sacrificing vision from a distance.
What Results Can I Expect from Vision Correction Eye Drops?
Despite its simple nature, the results of VUITY are noticeable almost immediately. Many patients report noticeable improvement to their near vision after only 15 minutes of receiving the treatment. These effects can typically last for up to six hours, during which time the patient should be able to see clearly from virtually any distance.
