FDA-Approved ‘Vuity’: Is it Really Worth Messing with Your Eyes?

Sorry, but if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t.

A newly approved eye drop hitting the market on Thursday could change the lives of millions of Americans with age-related blurred near vision, a condition affecting mostly people 40 and older.

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.

If we’ve learned anything from the COVID-19 response, a seal of approval from the federal government is hardly reassuring and best taken with a grain of salt the size of a cinder block.

“Contact your doctor immediately if you have sudden vision loss….”

We’ve got this miracle that’s not covered by insurance and costs $80 monthly.

Glasses are cheaper and if they ain’t broke, leave your eyes alone as they’re the only ones you’re going to have.
