What Is This Study About?

Bellaire Family Eye Care is currently seeking children ages 7-12 to participate in an innovative new contact lens study on nearsightedness (myopia). 

Why It Matters:

Research has shown that early onset of nearsightedness can have both short- and long-term impacts. In the short term, it can impact a child academically. In the long term, it can potentially lead to risks to eye health.

How It Works:

  • This study will evaluate a daily disposable contact lens designed to slow myopia progression.  
  • The total time commitment for study participants is approximately 18 hours, consisting of nine visits over the course of three years.
  • Patients will be compensated for their time with free daily disposable contact lenses for use during the study, free eye exams, plus up to $200 towards the cost of a pair of spectacles. 
  • Please note these eligibility requirements to see if your child may be eligible to participate in the study. 

Patient information will remain confidential and will be securely stored at the clinic and will not be shared with the sponsor or used for another study.
