Mexican researchers create drops that correct tired eyesight or presbyopia


The tired eyesight or presbyopia, is a common vision problem, especially after 40. The good news is that Mexican scientists created a treatment based on ophthalmic drops that achieve a significant improvement in vision, avoiding surgery.

A problem that comes with age

According to Mayo Clinic specialists, presbyopia is a natural part of aging and manifests between 40 and 45 years, although people with hyperopia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or cardiovascular disease are at risk of premature presbyopia. Its main characteristic is the gradual loss of the ocular capacity to focus on nearby objects; The symptoms that a person begins to suffer from are:

– Hold the book or newspaper away to see clearly.

– Have blurred vision at a normal reading distance.

-Suffer from eye strain or headache after reading.

Less invasive solution

Previously the options to solve this problem were reduced to the use of lenses or surgery. Fortunately, Mexican researchers from the biomedical company Yolia Health developed an incredible technological innovation: a non-invasive treatment known as True Vision or TVT, which offers a significant and stable improvement for patients with presbyopia.

The treatment consists of using personalized contact lenses for 7 days(thanks to specific examinations such as a corneal topography ) that shape the curvature of the cornea, for 8 hours a day, in addition to applying one-of-a-kind eye drops every hour. After this time, you should go to review to assess the result.

According to Dr. Raúl Suárez, ophthalmologist and member of the research committee, the treatment has shown high effectiveness in more than 500 procedures performed since its invention. Also, a study by the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes confirms its effectiveness.  

This is undoubtedly a wonderful news for those who suffer from tired eyesight and want to see them up close without needing to wear glasses or undergo invasive procedures. If you or a family member suffer from it, come to your specialist to see if it is a relevant option.
