VUITY™ Now Available at Lifetime Eyecare
Our eyes change as we age. These age related changes can lead to blurry near vision also known as presbyopia. With presbyopia, the lenses of our eyes become harder and less flexible, making it more difficult to see up-close. But now there’s VUITY™. The first and only prescription eye drop to treat age-related blurry near vision (presbyopia) in adults.
Other Options to Treat Presbyopia Include:
Progressive lenses, reading lenses, bifocals or contact lenses.
BUT NOW there’s a way to treat your presbyopia without the need for additional pairs of glasses.
VUITY™ primarily works by reducing your pupil size to help you see up close.
One drop in each eye, once daily to help improve near vision in presbyopia patients.
If more than one type of eyedrop is being used, administer at least 5 minutes apart.
Remove your contacts lenses before using VUITY™ and wait 10 minutes after dosing before reinserting your contact lenses.
