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 Bloomington, MN, today.

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.
