The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a new eye drop that could replace reading glasses for 128 million Americans who are farsighted and can’t see close-up.
“The new medicine takes effect in about 15 minutes, with one drop in each eye providing sharper vision for six to 10 hours,” according to the manufacturer.

“Vuity, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in October, would potentially replace reading glasses for some of the 128 million Americans who have trouble seeing close-up. The new medicine takes effect in about 15 minutes, with one drop on each eye providing sharper vision for six to 10 hours, according to the company.
“Toni Wright, one of the 750 participants in a clinical trial to test the drug, said she liked what she saw. It’s definitely a life changer,” Wright told CBS News national correspondent Jericka Duncan. Before the trial, the only way Wright could see things clearly was by keeping reading glasses everywhere — in her office, bathroom, kitchen and car. I was in denial because to me that was a sign of growing older, you know, needing to wear glasses,” she said.
