Those who suffer from blurry near vision caused by presbyopia (age-related lens changes that affect focusing and impact reading) now have another option available to them other than strong reading glasses.  The FDA approved eye drops in October 2021 (Vuity) and a recent study found a significant portion of people using them saw improvement in vision as soon as 15 minutes after putting the drops in.  They last about six hours.  The pilocarpine hydrochloride drops work by decreasing the pupil size.  Don’t drive at night after putting the drops in as they decrease night vision.
