Protocol: SITE00000065
Full Title
A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Masked, Vehicle-Controlled Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of SYD-101 Ophthalmic Solution for the Treatment of Myopia in Children
Description
This study enrolls children with myopia, or nearsightedness. The purpose of this study is to learn whether the use of SYD-101, an eye solution, slows down the progression of myopia in children.

Your child will participate in this study for about 4 years. During that time, they will receive either the investigational eyedrop
or placebo, which is an eyedrop without active ingredients. The eyedrop they are given is picked randomly, like flipping a coin. Your child will take 1 drop in each eye every night at bedtime. You and your child will also have regular visits at the study clinic. This study takes place at UBMD Ophthalmology (Ross Eye Institute)at one of their three locations in WNY (Downtown, Orchard Park, or Amherst).

Compensation is available.
