Myopia, or nearsightedness, is the most common eye disorder, often affecting more than 40% of adults in Europe, Asia and the USA. Severe myopia is associated with an increased risk of developing other eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachment, which may lead to blindness. Early treatment of myopia in children could help slow the condition and minimize the risk of complications later in life. This study investigates the use of SYD-101, an eye solution, in slowing-down the progression of myopia in children.
