VUITY™ Eye Drops for Presbyopia Treatment

Vuity 900x500

Vuity ThumbnailVUITY™ (pilocarpine HCl ophthalmic solution) 1.25%, the first and only eye drop approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat presbyopia, is now available by prescription at Premier Vision Care Optometry. Presbyopia, or age-related blurry near vision, can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye exam by our eye doctors and is a common and progressive eye condition that affects 128 million Americans, or nearly half of the U.S. adult population.

VUITY is an optimized formulation of pilocarpine, established eye care therapeutic, specifically designed to treat age-related blurry near vision. It is delivered with proprietary pHast™ technology, which allows VUITY to rapidly adjust to the physiologic pH of the tear film. This was studied in simulated tear film, and the clinical significance is unknown. VUITY uses the eye’s own ability to reduce pupil size, improving near and intermediate vision while maintaining distance vision.

About Presbyopia

Presbyopia, known as age-related blurry near vision, is a common and progressive eye condition that reduces the eye’s ability to focus on near objects and usually impacts people after age 40. In a non-presbyopic eye, the clear lens behind the iris can change shape and focus light to the retina, making it easier to see things up close. In a presbyopic eye, the clear lens hardens and does not change shape as easily, making it difficult to focus on near objects. Presbyopia can be diagnosed by our eye doctors.
