The US has approved a new type of eye drop which they say could eliminate the need for reading glasses.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) recently approved the use of an eye drop designed to improve age-related near-vision, reports the media agency.

Called Vanity, the drop is applied to each eye once a day and starts working within 15 minutes of application. The makers say each drop lasts for at least six hours.

The drug is a formulation of a well-known compound known as pilocarpine, informed to reports.

The Drop does take advantage of the eye’s ability to reduce pupil size and improve near-vision whilst maintaining distance vision.

The drop is most effective for those between the ages of 40 and 55.

The drops were found to result in no serious side effects. However, some patients experienced mild headaches and eye redness.
