Hey middle-agers, listen up! Not sure if you’re a middle-ager? Here’s how to know. Do you have reading glasses everywhere? On your desk. On your nightstand. In your purse. Next to the remote. In your car. On your head. Yes? Can’t see a menu when you’re out to eat, food labels when you’re cooking or your phone text without your reading glasses? You’re a middle-ager.
We have exciting news! The FDA has approved the first and only prescription eye drop that improves age-related blurry near vision (a condition called presbyopia) in adults. It’s called Vuity™, and Cargo Eye Care is now offering it!
Always at the forefront of what’s new in vision correction solutions, Dr. Cargo and his team of doctors are excited to offer this new presbyopia treatment to patients.
“For people struggling with age-related near vision issues who want to be free from the inconvenience and restrictions of reading glasses, Vuity is an incredible new option.”
-Dr. Jonathan Cargo
What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is the gradual and progressive loss of your eyes’ ability to focus on near objects. It’s a natural, often annoying part of aging, and everyone will deal with it sooner or later. Most commonly, it starts in your mid-40s or 50s and continues to worsen until about age 65.
How Does Vuity™ Work?
The prescription eye drop is designed to be applied once a day at home in each eye and works by reducing your pupil size. It contracts certain muscles in the eye so you can see up close. Hello, convenience and goodbye readers!
The drops are designed to adjust to your body’s pH level to avoid any burning, stinging or discomfort.
Is Vuity™ Right For Me?
Simply schedule an appointment with us! Our team will do a comprehensive eye exam, and if they feel Vuity™ is a good fit for your vision, they will write you a prescription for the drops. You can fill them at your local pharmacy; they range from $79 to $101 per bottle. From there, we’ll do a follow-up to ensure you’re loving your Vuity™ drops.
