VUITY™, a new eye drop that hit stores on Thursday, December 9th, is the first FDA-approved eye medication for the treatment of presbyopia. The medication works by reducing the size of the pupil, which helps to expand the depth of focus and allows users to see at a range of distances.
Newborns, while possessed with the full visual capacity to see objects and colors, can only see 8-15 inches away. Over time, distance vision improves, as does the development of color vision, allowing babies with healthy vision to see the world with more clarity right around four months. However, vision development does not stop at this point. In fact, it continues throughout our lives.
Most of us use computers, tablets or cell phones every day. These powerful tools are indispensable for work and for our busy social lives. Over time, these devices can cause serious strain and even injury to the eyes.
