CHILDHOOD IS A CRITICAL TIME FOR EYESIGHT DEVELOPMENT!
Optimizing vision in childhood is key to lifelong eye health and a bright future.
Right now, a clinical research study is enrolling children who have nearsightedness (called myopia). Researchers are testing an investigational eyedrop to learn whether it may slow the progression of myopia in these children.
Children who volunteer and qualify for this study will participate for up to 48 months. Your child's health is very important to us and will be monitored throughout the entire study. He or she may qualify to participate in this study if:
- They are 3 to 14 years of age (male or female)
- You (patient/guardian) are able to administer eyedrops
- They are in good general health
- They have myopia (nearsightedness) in both eyes
All study-related medication and care will be at no cost to you if your child volunteers and qualifies.
