Are You Tired of the Eyeglasses? [Amazing Drops]: Problems with near-sightedness affect millions of people around the world who have to use eyeglasses to study.
But the good news is that soon such people will not need eyeglasses for nearsightedness because an experimental eye drop has emerged as a solution.

According to a statement issued by a company called Allergen Eye Care, this eye drop is likely to be approved this year.

According to experts, this vision problem can start at the age of 10 and the ability to focus can be completely lost by the age of 70, however, most patients realize it in the 5th decade of life.
This condition causes the lens of the eye to lose its elasticity, making it difficult for it to change its structure, making it possible to see distant objects clearly but to focus on nearby objects or during the study. It becomes difficult.
This eye drop is not primarily to treat the cause of the disease but to help cure its symptoms.

At the same time, it is possible to see nearby objects clearly.
Two trials of the new drug were performed on 750 people between the ages of 40 and 55, divided into two groups, one with eye drops and the other with a placebo once a day for 30 days.
The results showed that these eye drops were safe and effective, while the participants in the trial were able to read 3 lines of words on the chart in low light, while the people in the placebo group failed to do so.
These eye drops to eliminate the need for glasses within 15 minutes of being inserted into the eye, but their efficacy takes more than an hour to reach their peak.
Less than 5% of people with side effects experienced headaches, redness of the eyes, blurred vision, and some eye pain.
If approved, it would be the first eye drops to treat presbyopia.
This eye drop should be used once a day or the number may be higher if needed. Further trials will be conducted to see how this medicine works if used more than once a day. Will
According to the company, these eye drops are currently given to people over 40 to 50 years of age who have a mild or moderate visual impairment.
But in the near future, it will be tried on elderly patients as well.
