Myopia research team from School of Optometry of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University are recruiting school children to take part in a clinical trial on myopia control. The study aims to slow the progression of myopia in children using bright light therapy as higher levels of myopia are associated with increased risk of eye complications. Spectacles will be prescribed to eligible children and a bright light therapy lamp will be distributed. Throughout 2-year study period, children will be invited to visit Optometry Research Clinic in PolyU every 6 months. Comprehensive eye examination (with pupil dilation) will be conducted in order to evaluate children’s myopia development and general eye health. Participation is free of charge.
