  • Repeated Low-level Red-light Therapy in Myopia Control

    open to eligible people ages 8-13

    Low-level red-light technology provides a new and innovative myopia control approach. This strategy enables relatively high energies of light to be delivered at much shorter durations of exposure to induce the myopia control effect. The efficacy of the low-level red-light technology has been proven in a Chinese population. This trial demonstrated that 3-minutes per session twice a day repeated low-level red-light treatment controlled 87.7% of refraction progression and 76.8% of axial length elongation when the time of compliance to the treatment was 75%. Repeating this RCT in culturally diverse groups will confirm and translate this technology into a solution for myopia control globally.

  • Microdosed Atropine 0.1% and 0.01% Ophthalmic Solutions for Reduction of Pediatric Myopia Progression

    open to eligible people ages 3-12

    This study evaluates the progression of myopia in participants using microdosed atropine 0.01%, atropine 0.1%, or placebo ophthalmic solution. Eligible subjects will administer study medication daily in each eye for 48 months. Efficacy and safety assessments will be performed at visits scheduled for 1, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months after initiation of medication use. Subjects will be re-randomized at the 36 month visit, then followed at 6 month intervals for an additional year.
