Frequently asked questions
VUITY® contracts the iris sphincter muscle, constricting the pupil to improve near and intermediate visual acuity while maintaining some pupillary response to light.1 VUITY® also contracts the ciliary muscle, and may shift the eye to a more myopic state.1
VUITY® is indicated for the treatment of presbyopia in adults.1
The recommended dosage of VUITY® is one drop in each eye once daily.1 If more than one topical ophthalmic product is being used, the products should be administered at least 5 minutes apart.1
If more than one type of topical eye therapy is being used, they should be administered at least 5 minutes apart.1
Yes. However, contact lenses should be removed prior to the instillation of VUITY® and patients should wait 10 minutes after dosing before reinserting them.1
VUITY® was evaluated in 375 patients with presbyopia in two randomized, double-masked, vehicle-controlled studies (GEMINI 1 and GEMINI 2) of 30 days' duration.1 The most common adverse reactions reported in >5% of patients were headache and conjunctival hyperemia.1 Ocular adverse reactions reported in 1–5% of patients were blurred vision, eye pain, visual impairment, eye irritation, and increased lacrimation.1
Rare cases of retinal detachment and retinal tear have been reported with miotics, including VUITY®.1
Individuals with pre-existing retinal disease are at increased risk. Therefore, examination of the retina is advised in all patients prior to the initiation of therapy.1
Patients should be advised to seek immediate medical care with sudden onset of flashing lights, floaters, or vision loss.1
The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of VUITY®. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to VUITY® exposure.1
Eye disorders: vitreous detachment, vitreomacular traction, retinal tear, retinal detachment.1
Patients may pay as little as $79 per bottle of VUITY®.
VUITY® is not covered by insurance, but your patients can use their HSA/FSA to pay for VUITY®.
