Summary

Myopia usually worsens during childhood. High myopia is associated with retinal detachments and other serious eye conditions causing poor vision. In this study, eye drops of two concentrations of dilute atropine or placebo will be administered daily to children with myopia, ages 3-14 years, over a 4 year period. It is hoped that the dilute atropine drops will slow the worsening of myopia compared to other treatments. The purpose of this study is to determine and compare these drugs' efficacy in reducing the progression of myopia.
