When it comes to detecting problems with vision, it pays to start early, before brains are hardwired. In InfantSEE, a public health program in which Pacific participates, the patients may be as young as 6 months old.
Participants will receive all study-related visits, eye exams, eye drops and more for free.
Prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses are the most common treatment for myopia.
