    4. Treating presbyopia with an eye drop?

    Topical administration of lipoic acid choline ester 1.5% (EV06, Encore Vision) shows promise as a treatment for restoring accommodation to patients with presbyopia, said Richard L. Lindstrom, MD.

    Acting via an “anti-crosslinking” mechanism, the treatment increases lens elasticity through reduction of lens protein disulfides, and was associated with impressive improvements in accommodative amplitude and near vision in an initial randomized, double-masked phase I-II clinical trial.
